07/07/1882 Adder (+1882) wreck
Adder (+1882)Netherlands Navy, monitor ram; 1871; Rijkswerf Amsterdam; 1.566 tons; 210x42; 9 knots; pne 11 in. Gun, several smaller. The Dutch monitor-ram Adder, Lt. Cdr E.S. van der Aa, foundered in a gale in the North Sea off Scheveningen on July 7th, 1882. The vessel probably capsized, as she was of low freeboard with a heavy gun turret of 9 in. thickness of iron forward. Her complement was about 150 officers and men, of whom 65 were drowned. [Hans van der Weide:] Gebouwd in 1871 door Rijkswerf Amsterdam. Een ram-monitor, een laag op het water liggend gepantserd vaartuig bestemd voor de verdediging van de Nederlandse kustgaten. Ze had één 11 in gun. Volgens een verslag uit 1880 waren monitors geen zeeschepen maar drijvende batterijen. De eerste 5 waren in Engeland gebouwd, de volgende 6 in Nederland. Tijdens een opkomende storm sloegen de dekluiken eraf. De ramp kostte 65 mensen (van de 150) het leven. Ze was een zusterschip van de ´´Buffel´´ die momenteel in Rotterdam ligt. Niemand heeft de ramp gezien, door een comunicatiefout werd het schip ook niet vermist. Op 8 juli 1881 spoelde het stoffelijk overschot van een van de opvarenden aan bij Ter Heijden, waarna men pas besefte wat er was gebeurd. Deze ramp was de aanleiding om in 1883 ´het houden van een uitkijk en het rapporteren van in nood verkerende schepen´ op te dragen aan het personeel van de Kustverlichting, dus in feite het begin van de Kustwacht.´´

07/07/1915 Amalfi SS (+1915) wreck
Amalfi SS (+1915)Italian Navy, second class battleship; 1908; Odero; 10,118 tons; 461x69x24-3; 19,000 i.h.p.; 22-5 knots; triple-expansion engines; Belleville boilers; four 10 in. guns, eight 7-5 in., sixteen 14 pdr., two 12 pdr.,3 T.T. The Italian battleship Amalfi has been described in various quarters as an armoured cruiser, a battle cruiser and a battleship. Probably the best definition is that of a lightly armed, lightly armoured second class battleship of the pre-dreadnought era. On July 7th, 1915, the ship was returning to Venice after a bombardment of the Austrian coastal defences near Trieste, under escort of two light cruisers and several destroyers. At dawn, when about 15 miles from Venice, the ship was attacked by a submarine, the U.B. 15, Cdr. H. von Heimburg. Only one torpedo was fired and this struck the Amalfi a mortal blow, and in a very short time she sank with about 150 of her complement of 550. The remaining 400 were taken off by the escorting vessels. One remarkable incident which is probably unique in maritime annals occurred in this disaster. The engineer-commander of the Amalfi when swimming close to the sinking ship was drawn under and his arm severed by one of the screws. He came to the surface and was assisted by the ship´s surgeon who was swimming nearby. The surgeon managed to make a tourniquet of his belt and affixed it to the wounded man´s arm while still in the water. Later both were picked up by a boat from one of the other ships. The U.B. 15 was a small-type submarine with a crew of 14, and had been sent overland in sections to Pola.

07/07/1942 U-701 ? (+1942) wreck
U-701 ? (+1942)On her 4th and last patrol, U-701 (Capt. Degen) was very succesful in laying mines off Chesapeake Bay, Virginia on 12th June 1942, with her mines damaging Esso Augusta and Robert C. Tuttle, sinking the armed trawler HMS Kingston Ceylonite and the Santore. Later, she came across the small armed trawler YP-389 and sunk her with the 88 mm deck gun. On June 27th, while torpedoeing the tanker British Freedom, she was herself attacked by the auxillary armed yacht, USS St. Augustine which dropped 5 depth charges. The depth charges damaged the conning tower gauges, electric motors and air-circulators. The U-701 crew was able to repair all, but the air-circulators. As the crew got sick and poisened by the shortage of oxygen, Degen ordered the U-701 to surface on June 28th 1942 to ventilate the boat. Just as she surfaced, she spotted the 14.054 tons oil tanker SS William Rockefeller with over 136.000 barrels of fuel oil. She pressed for a torpedo attack and hit the William Rockefeller, which became a total fire inferno. She dived back to security, escaping some 14 depth charges from escorting planes, relocating the tanker 12 hours later and finishing her off with a second torpedo. [Note: Jan Lettens: story resembles part of the ´Das Boot´ movie ! ] The U-701 now stayed for several days under water, but as the crew got sick and desparate from the bad air and the malfunctioning air-circulators, Capt. Degen decided to surface his ship once again for some fresh air. Just as she was preparing to dive back into security, she was spotted by a patrolling Army A-29 Hudson aircraft. The plane (Lt. HJ Kane), dropped 3 depth charges at her, as the U-701 was trying to make for an emergency dive. The second and third depth charge hit the U-boat just aft of the conning tower and cracked its pressure hull. Degen immediately ordered re-surfacing and abandon ship. The U-701 though, with the hull cracked, sank immediatley back to the bottom. 17 crew members, including Degen, managed to escape to the surface. The Hudson A-29 dropped a life raft and vests. The survivors drifted for 2 days and finally, on 9th July, seven survivors were spotted by a patrolling airship north of the Wimble Shoals light. They lowered a raft, blankets and supplies to the now desparate men. Later, the crew, including Captain Degen were picked up and taken to Norfolk.
