Sinking History
On November 2, 1943, attacked by B-25 Mitchells. Bombed by B-25 Mitchell piloted by Captain Charles W. Howe and sunk in Simpson Harbor near Rabaul.

Upright on the bottom, near the wharf. There are gaping holes in her hull, and the twisted metal superstructure give a clear indication of the hits that sank her. The wreck is now home for an array of fish species, including morays, jacks and coral trout.
