Probably from the D-day landings I guess?..I used to go scuba diving on the shipwrecks/Liberty ships/Floating harbours

etc ...I know there where plenty about due to the bombing..

 

Apart from that  The Irish Sea was the southerly Atlantic corridor for supply ships heading for North Africa from UK seaports?..

 

Mabye sunk by a waiting U-boat probably?....I'd say the latter))

I believe a nasty wee U-boat helped them on their way to Davy Jones locker:)

The amount of tanks carried by any cargo ship was only limited by the ships 'Diplacement'...I'm sure that there was many 

more than what's displayed in this pic...Also some of the cargo fleets heading to North Africa where 100 plus in strength..

supported by the Royal Navy...

 

..And at certain times during the Atlantic effort what I believe was that it was'Acceptable' during war time for only

25% of the fleet to make it to its destination....

 

God rest their souls...
