Portugal,Europe

Ingram was a cargo steamer built by Edward Withy & Company in Sunderland, and was launched in 1882 for the British company Steel, Young & Company in London. She was sold in 1900 to Gordon Steam Company, followed by another sale to the Norwegian company Fredavore AS in 1910 who renamed her Torvore. Under a journey from Swansea to Naples loaded with coal, she was stopped by the German uboat  U-35 under command of Kapitänleutnant Lothar Von Arnauld de la Perière outside Algarve 24. April 1917. After a quick inspection the crew was ordered to abandoned ship and she was sunk by explosives. The battered wreck rest today on her keel on a depth of 25 to 32 meter about two nautical miles southeast of Sagres . Also see the wreck of the cargo steamer Wilhelm Krag, also sunk by U-35.
