Vessels Lost in WW2 Recorded on the Memorial at Tower Hill

This page includes basic information about the ships and how they were lost, a photo of the relevant panel(s) of the Tower Hill Memorial and information about those that lost their lives extracted from the CWGC database. In the table I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as this seems appropriate to me. In some cases further family information about the individuals may be available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.

Aguila

She was a steam passenger ship sailing in convoy OG-71 when it was attacked and sunk by German submarine U-201 on 19 August 1941 at position 49° 23' N 17° 56' W.

I am indebted to Uboat.net - External Ref. #2 - for the following additional information:

The Aguila (Master Arthur Firth) was the ship of the convoy commodore (Vice-Admiral Patrick E. Parker, DSO, RN) and sank within 90 seconds. The commodore, four naval staff members, 58 crew members and 89 passengers were lost. The master, six crew members, one naval staff member and two passengers were picked up by HMS Wallflower (K 44) (LtCdr I.J. Tyson, RN) and landed at Gibraltar. Six crew members were rescued by the Empire Oak, but were lost when this ship was sunk by U-564 on 22 August.

Among the passengers on board the Aguila were 22 women from the WRNS (Womens Royal Navy Service) who had volunteered for cypher and wireless duties in Gibraltar. None of the Wrens survived the sinking. As a tribute to their memory, a lifeboat named Aguila Wren was built and launched on 28 Jun, 1952 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
