Cargo COAL. Torpedoed by German Submarine U-37. Captain Jonathon Macinnes. 7 crew lost. The wreck has been identified by the maker’s plate but as yet no bell has been found. The boarding crew from U Boat 37 possibly removed it, they often took the bell to prove the kill and used bombs rather than used more valuable torpedoes that could be used on better armed prey. The Germans boarded her, bombs were placed and SS Jeanne was blown up after the ship’s crew had been allowed to take to the lifeboats. See
