  • Notes 
    • Robert W. Spivey died at sea in 1943 when the HMT Rohna was sunk in the Mediterranean Sea. The HMT Rohna (His Majesty's Ship) was a British India Steam Navigation Company Ship with US Troops aboard. It was sunk by a radio controlled guided missile bomb deployed from a German Luftwaffe Aircraft. More than 1100 were killed, most of whom were US Troops. This was the first radio controlled guided missile attack ever launched against The United States. [1]
