Archanda
Archanda by T. Diedrich
          She was built as Cramond in 1919 and bought in 1921 by Compañía Naviera Bachi, being renamed Tom. She was the second Tom; the first was sunk on 13/April/1917, in a trip from Bilbao to Cardiff, after being hit by a torpedo fired by the submarine UC-26. The sinking was very fast, with 20 crewmembers dead and 7 survivors.
          In 1953 she was bought by Compañía Naviera Vascongada and renamed Archanda, trading mainly wood logs from the Spanish Guinea to Spain mainland, like the previous years. There were other trips like the last one, to load sugar in Brazil on January 1960, when she grounded at Boa Vista island (Cabo Verde). She was lost but all crewmembers survived.
