I started to write some on other Naval Legends today and started on the 75+ Year old story of the "SS Ourang Medan." This is just in is 2nd day of editing and research so I would say there is much to be improved, never the less an interesting story.. Some of which comes to us form Morris K. Jessup, and The Varo Edition of "The Case for the UFO." of The Philadelphia Experiment Story. Hope you find it interesting.

In 1947 the Dutch Freighter SS Ourang Medan sent a cryptic SOS in Morse code;
“All Officers, including the Captain, are dead. Lying in chartroom and bridge. Possibly whole crew dead.
This communication was followed by a burst of indecipherable Morse code,
then a final, grim message: “I die.”​

Interesting, this is a story I have read and come across a fair number of times, my issue with the story is I think it is just that a story and nothing more, however having said that I would be interested in reading your take on it as who kno9ws maybe there is some truth behind the story.

It is simply that I feel a Story, and when told the first time in 1940 I guess they did not get the press they were looking for and the story was mostly lost in other news at the time.. they thought they would tell it again in 1947. A ship can't blow up and sink twice :) Anyhow it's interesting how this story continues to go around and that is why I took a more critical look at it.
