The Albert C Fields was on her way to Penarth for the invasion beaches of Normandy with US mail and 2500 tons of ammunition. She is believed to have been hit by a German night bomber. She listed to starboard and two explosions were heard as she split in two.

The wreck is now in 2 pieces approximately 80m apart with a debris field of damaged ammunition in between.
