Remembering the James Eagan Layne

Description
The School's Human Interface Technology Team was in the maritime heritage spotlight again recently, courtesy of a project to commemorate the 1945 sinking of a US Liberty Ship, the James Eagan Layne. The Eagan Layne was one of many hundreds of mass-produced cargo vessels built by the US during World War II to provide the Allies with vital supplies. After being torpedoed by the German U-Boat U-399 off the Eddystone Reef in March 1945, the Eagan Layne was taken under tow by two local tugs and finally sank – fortunately without loss of life – in Whitsand Bay near Plymouth.
