9th August 1942.
American destroyer USS Jarvis was hit by an aerial torpedo while escorting troop transports during the Guadalcanal landings. She was damaged, underwent emergency repairs and set sail for Brisbane, Australia at 8 knots. She became a sitting duck and was hit again near Cape Esperance, splitting in two and sinking in minutes, taking with her all 248 men aboard, including Lt Cdr Graham.
