Jacobus Fritzen


The steamer Dalemoor was laid down by William Doxford & Sons Ltd in Sunderland, and was launched in 1909 for Walther Runciman & Company. She changed name and owners a couple of times before she ended up sailing for Fritzen & Sohn in 1926 as Jacobus Fritzen. Under a journey from Sweden to Germany loaded with iron ore, she was spotted and torpedoed by the Soviet submarine D-2 outside Ystad in the afternoon 14. October 1942. The wreck was found by sport divers in the late 1970's, and rest today on a depth of 30 to 45 meter southwest of Ystad.
