Taken from wrecksite.eu: On the 14th November 1940 the FISHPOOL had been sailing from the Tyne to Vancouver in ballast when she was hit by seven incendiary bombs South-West of Rockall killing several crew. The ship was abandoned and one lifeboat with 15 crew was never seen again. The ship was taken in tow and repaired.

On the 9th May 1941 while loading stores at Barrow-in-Furness FISHPOOL was again damaged by a parachute mine, which detonated next to the ship killing 2 crew.

FISHPOOL was finally sunk in an air raid at Syracuse on the 26th July 1943 while discharging ammunition and aviation spirit brought from Alexandria killing 23 crew and 5 DEMS gunners. 18 survived.
