  History  
 
Vleggeert Nico24/07/2008At 02.34 hours on 26 Sep, 1940, the Corrientes (Master Thomas Halliday Young Stewart), dispersed from convoy OB-217, was torpedoed by U-32 (Jenisch) about 600 miles west of Achill Head, Co. Mayo (grid AL 4885), but remained afloat. At 21.40 hours on 28 September, the abandoned ship was struck by one torpedo from U-37 and finally sunk by gunfire. The master and 49 crew members were picked up by the Swedish merchant Kolsnaren and landed at Philadelphia.

About Builders
 Short Brothers Ltd., Pallion (Sunderland)
George Short started in 1850, and moved to Pallion in 1869. Short’s built more ships for local owners than any other yard. It closed in 1964 when the firm was unwilling to redevelop and build bigger ships. The yard was demolished, although Bartram’s took over the fitting out quay, which was still in use in the 1980s.
