At 02.31 hours on 8 Oct, 1942, the unescorted Koumoundouros was hit aft by a torpedo from U-68 about 20 miles southwest of Cape Point, South Africa. The ship had been missed by two torpedoes at 01.22 and 02.17 hours. At 03.13 hours, the U-boat fired a coup de grâce after the crew abandoned ship and hit the vessel again aft, causing the ship to sink by the stern.
