HM Submarine Stonehenge

MS Stonehenge was an S class submarine of the Royal Navy, and part of the Third Group built of that class. She was built by Cammell Laird and launched on March 23, 1943. She served in the Pacific, where she sank the Japanese merchant vessel Koryo Maru No.2 and the Japanese auxiliary minelayer Choko Maru. She left Trincomalee to patrol in the northern part of the Malacca Straits on February 25, 1944. Nothing further was heard from the submarine and she failed to reach Ceylon on 20th March as expected. It is believed that HMS Stonehenge struck a mine.
