|Marie Molinos, Capt. Juhel had left Nantes on May 3rd when on the same day, she sighted a submarine that fired one shell and hoisted signal AB for “Abandon ship.” So did the crew and after they had pulled away, the U-Boat fired 15 shells that made the vessel sink soon thereafter. The submarine made no attempt to come in touch with the crew, who were saved the following morning by the Spanish steamer Wenceslao and landed at Villagarcia.|
