Amerikansk dampskib på 2535 bdr, Sejlede på en mine, da det var på vej til
USA med en last af 3000 tons stenkul. Alle 37 ombordværende blev reddet. Da
ca 1800 tons af lasten blev hævet med grab, fandt man et 3 x 5 meter stor hul
i bunden af forreste lastrum, dette er formodentlig hullet efter minespræng-
ningen. Det har også været fremført at et stor hul med udadvendte plader
midskibs på styrbord side kunne tyde på keddeleksplosion.

Lake Placid (Id. No. 1788)

(Str: t. 1,585; l. 261'; b. 43'6" ; dr. 24.1
s. 10 k. ; cpl. 64; a. 1 5", 1 6-pdr.)
A small lake in the Adirondack Mountains of
northeastern New York, and the village on
its banks.

Lake Placid, a cargo ship, was launched
under USSB contract as War Path 11 August
1917 by Detroit Shipbuilding Co., Detroit,
Mich.; acquired by the Navy 3 January 1918
at New York; and commissioned as Lake Placid
12 January 1918 at Philadelphia, Lt. Comdr.
Charles E. Beveridge, USNRF, in command.

Assigned to NOTS, Lake Placid made a coaling
run to Norfolk and back 16 to 24 February
1918 before departed Philadelphia 3 March
with a cargo of coal and supplies. She
joined a convoy at Halifax, Nova Scotia, 28
March; reached Brest, France, 12 April; and
operated out of Brest and Paulliac, France,
until 13 May when she sailed for New York,
arriving the 29th.

Lake Placid steamed to Norfolk 30 May,
loaded another cargo of coal, and departed
29 July for Scotland. Arriving Oban 16
August, she steamed to Kyle, Glasgow, and
Lamlash, Scotland, then returned to Norfolk
17 September. On her third voyage to
European waters she sailed to Oban 1 to 20
October with a full cargo of mines for use
in the Northern Mine Barrage. After calling
at Kyle and Glasgow, she steamed to Norfolk,
arriving 22 November.

Resuming transport runs out of Norfolk, Lake
Placid carried coal and general cargo to
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; Key West and
Pensacola, Fla.; New York; and Portsmouth,
N.H., from 15 December until 12 March 1919.
Returning to Norfolk from Key West 12 March,
she decommissioned 18 March and was returned
to USSB the same day. While in merchant
service, Lake Placid struck a mine off
Gotenborg, Sweden, and sank 19 May 1919.
