SS Breda - Oban
SS Breda was requisitioned for war duties from the Royal Netherlands Steamship Company. On the 12th of December 1940 she left London with a crew of 42. She reached Oban eight days later with a valuable cargo including 3 Hawker Biplanes, 30 De Havilland Moths, military vehicles and an assortment of general cargo.
On the 23rd two
German Heinkel 111 bombers appeared overhead and before anyone could
open fire on them they dropped a stick of bombs that straddled the
Breda. Although there wasn't a hit there may just have been as
the concussion of the explosions either side caused serious damage
to her inlet pipe and she started taking on water heavily which
killed the engines and the electrics.
Here is some video that I took of the wreck.
