On  July 17, this 3,777-ton Dutch freighter, with 5,451 tons of grain from Rosario to the UK via Freetown, was stopped by a shot across the bows and abandoned without sending any distress signals.


Her crew of 33 was taken on board and she was sunk by demolition charges.


On board the Tela details were found of ‘Route 271’, on which her last four victims had been found, and so the raider remained on the same course for ten days, but without any further success.
