|La Negra had left Sierra Leone on 22 August 1917 in convoy HL2, but had consistently straggled due to boiler problems. The ship was struck by two torpedoes in separate attacks, was abandoned and reboarded and taken in tow by one tug, but sank whilst under tow. The survivors were picked up by H.M.S. Victor.|
