9 juin 1942 – Mimosa

« At 0410 hours on 9 June 1942 the Free French corvette Mimosa (Capitaine De Fregate Roger Richard Louis Birot) was hit by one of two torpedoes fired by U-124 (Mohr) near convoy ONS-100 and sank immediately after the boilers exploded in position 52º12’N, 32º37’W. The commander, 58 French sailors and six British sailors, including the liasion officer Royce Theobald (RNVR) were lost. The four surviving French sailors were picked up by the Canadian destroyer HMCS Assiniboine (Cdr. J.H. Stubbs, RCN).

The majority of the French sailors that went down with this ship all came from the same small community of St-Pierre et Miquelon. The loss of so many of the young men had lasting effects on that community.
