SS Nailsea Manor (Master: John Herbert Hewitt) was torpedoed and sunk by U-126 at 05.43 hours on October 10, 1941 in position 18.45N, 21.18W (about 180 miles NE of the Cape Verde Islands). Bad weather had caused the deck cargo (including a 450 ton landing craft) to shift and she was straggling in company with Ger-y-Bryn and Hazelside and protected by HMS Violet. The master, 35 crew members, 5 gunners and one passenger were picked up by the corvette, transferred to the City of Hong Kong and landed at Freetown on October 14. There were no fatalities.
