21 Aug 1943
While escorting convoy MKF-22 in the Mediterranean, HMS Belvoir (Lt. J.F.D. Bush, DSC, RN) accidentally torpedoed the American merchant Cape Mohican.
The convoy escorts had apparently sighted two darkened ships steaming ahead of the convoy and made their torpedo tubes ready, at 22.55 hours when they were trained to port for the second time a torpedo was fired accidentally by HMS Belvoir. She then immediately went to the assistance of Cape Mohican and escorted her to Malta.
