The Story of the DERBENT

In March 1915, the DERBENT was in the Mediterranean at Port Mudros and Tendos refuelling naval vessels such as HMS PHAETON and HMS INFLEXIBLE attempting to seize control of the Dardenelle Straits.

The tanker was on passage from Liverpool to Queenstown carrying 3860 tons of fuel oil, when she was torpedoed by U 96 on 30 November 1917. The U-boat was captained by KapLt Heinrich Jeß.
