U-Boats

So I was doing a bit of research on some of the wrecks between Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout, part of the area known as 'The Graveyard of the Atlantic' and 'Torpedo Junction.' I was looking up info on the tanker Papoose and the tanker W.E. Hutton, both sunk by U-124 19 March 1942. There's some confusion as to which wreck is which, though these days it's generally accepted that what we used to think is the Papoose is in fact W.E. Hutton.

There is a wonderful website for those who may be interested in submarine warfare in the Atlantic during World War II, and World War I. I've used it many times in the past but I don't think I've ever posted about it.

It's been around for awhile, but it just keeps getting better.
