Friday The Thirteenth 75 Yrs. Ago

FRI 13 FEB 1942
Chartered U.S. passenger ship President Taylor, transporting 900 troops to occupy Canton Island, runs aground on a reef off her destination, and becomes stranded.

Destroyer Ericsson (DD-440) accidentally sinks Icelandic trawler Greedir in collision off Hvalfjordur, Iceland.
Huh. Friday the Thirteenth, no combat, just accidents. Who'd've thunk it?
