Delivered in Jan.-1920 from N.V.C. van der Giessen & Zonen Scheepswerven, Krimpen, Holland. Ravnanger was bombed and sunk by German aircraft (possibly He 115 of the 3./K. Fl. Gr. 906) on November 11th 1940, 1-1.5 miles northeast of No 20 Buoy, Tees Bay, when proceeding at half speed (in ballast) while awaiting a convoy to go back to Sydney, N.S.
Racey Carl22/01/2011On 11 November 1940, the RAVNANGER was on passage from the Tees for Sydney in ballast, with a crew of thirty-seven and three passengers, when she was bombed and sunk by German aircraft. Twenty-six of her crew and one passenger died in the attack. Although the wreck here is believed to be the RAVNANGER, it is in the same position where the large steamship BENEFICENT sank in 1917.
