Casualties in the Jervis Bay, the armed merchant cruiser which in November 1940 saved 32 convoy ships by engaging a powerful German warship for an hour, numbered 198. All but eight of these were killed, presumed killed or died of wounds.
The full casualty list discloses that Acting Capt. Fogarty Fegen, posthumously awarded the V.C. for "Valour in challenging hopeless odds and giving his life to save the many ships it was his duty to protect", is officially listed as "missing, presumed killed."
