All-Indian Ocean Action

THU 3 JUN 1943
Indian Ocean
U.S. freighter Montanan is torpedoed and sunk by Japanese submarine I-27 off the Arabian coast, 17°58'N, 58°09'E. Six of the 42-man merchant complement and two of the 23-man Armed Guard are lost. Dhow Naranpasha comes across one boatload of survivors and transfers them to Indian Navy trawler RINS Baroda, which eventually transports them to Port Okah, India; the remaining three boatloads of survivors reach shore on Masirah Island, off Oman.
