Ships Sunk off NC Coast June 1942-- Part 2

While researching the Senateur Duhamel (which i wrote about on Saturday) I found mention that it had towed a ship damaged by a torpedo into Morehead City, NC in April 1942.  So, not every ship hit by a torpedo or attacked by a U-boat always ended up sinking.  I hadn't thought of that.  I have just been listing ships that sank.

June 24th:  LJUBICA--  freighter, torpedoed and sunk by U-404
June 25th:  NORDAL--  freighter, torpedoed and sunk by U-404.
June 25th: MANUELA--freighter, torpedoed and sunk by U-404, 2 killed.
.
June 25th  TAMESIS--  freighter, torpedoed and sunk by U-701.
June 27th:  BRITISH FREEDOM--  tanker, torpedoed and sunk by U-701.

June 28th:  WILLIAM ROCKEFELLER--  tanker, torpedoed by U-701.
June 30th:   CITY OF BIRMINGHAM--  passenger ship, torpedoed and sunk by U-202, 9 killed.
