* There seems to be some disagreement on the American Horace Gray; some sources say she sank, some say she didn't. She was torpedoed by U-711 on Febr. 14-1945. See my page about Norfjell.
Total Russian: 11
Total Panamanian: 8
the Dutch Paulus Potter was lost.
The Norwegian Norfjell is also listed as lost, but it appears she was repaired and put back into service. A number of escort vessels were also sunk. The "other side" likewise suffered losses; some German ships were sunk as well as several U-boats (see below). Aircraft were shot down on both sides.
Total number of ships lost in convoys to Russia: 103
