  History  
 
Claes Johnny16/04/2008At 21.03 hours on 20 Apr, 1942, the unescorted Vineland (Master Robert A. Williams) was hit aft by one G7e torpedo from U-154 north of Cap Haitien, Haiti and 1 minute later missed by a G7a torpedo that was a surface runner. The stern broke off after being hit by a torpedo at 21.20 hours, but the ship remained afloat and had to be sunk by five rounds from the deck gun. One crew member was lost. The master and 33 survivors were questioned by the Germans and later made landfall at Turks Island.

About Builders
 American International Shipbuilding Corp. - Hog Island Shipyard, Philadelphia
American International Shipbuilding Corporation was established in 1916 on Hog Island, at the downstream limit of the City of Philadelphia. Like Submarine Boat Company and Merchant Shipbuilding Company, it was designed to be an assembly facility, with up to 80% of each hull being prefabricated elsewhere. It was much bigger than the other two, however, occupying over 900 acres and having 50 building ways. After the war, it was closed and liquidated, the Corps of Engineers filled in the creek that made Hog Island an island and in 1925 it became an Air Force facility.
