Fate during World War II: The Gulpenn, an unescorted and unarmed oil tanker from 1921, was torpedoed by the German submarine U-506 on its way to Philadelphia from Port Arthur, Texas, May 13, 1942. The torpedo struck the engine room and killed all of the personnel on duty in that location. The vessel sank stern first and swiftly plunged to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. 25 crewmembers survived the attack, but one officer and 11 crewmen died in the explosion or went down with the tanker.
