PUNTA GORDO WW2 PUNTA GORDA (Owned by British Mexican Petroleum) official number 160460 built in 1928 was in collision with another tanker the 1926 built AMPETCO (Standard American Petroleum Co) on 18/9/1944 while on a voyage from Lake Maracaibo to Aruba. PUNTA GORDA caught fire and broke in two before she sank about 5 miles off Cabo San Roman, Venezuela. AMPETCO was declared a constructive total loss (CTL) towed to ARUBA and sunk as a target. Honorary British Empire Medal (Civil Division) (GB)   February 1945   Boatswain, s.s. “Punta Gorda” (Largo Shipping Company Ltd., London S.W.1)  The tanker “Punta Gorda”, on a voyage from Venezuela to San Nicolas, Aruba, collided with the Belgian tanker “Ampetco”, on 18th September 1944.  The “Punta Gorda”, which was carrying a cargo of crude oil, caught fire and sank. The “Ampetco” was also set on fire and badly damaged. The loss of life was heavy. Of a crew of twenty-five on board the “Punta Gorda”, only five were saved.  Boatswain Heiliger displayed gallantry of high order throughout. When the collision occurred he made outstanding attempts to get the boats and rafts away. Meanwhile, a fireman, seeing that the ship was in flames and fearing she would be destroyed, had jumped in to the water without life jacket, and had got in difficulties. The ship, circling and out of control, passed close to the fireman, who, seeing a boom projecting from the ship’s side, clutched at it and tried to get back on board. Boatswain Heiliger, hearing cries for help, helped him back on board in an exhausted condition. By this act the Boatswain sacrificed a chance of safety in a boat which he had just launched. The fire was now spreading rapidly and, as the ship was sinking, both men were forced to take to the water, over which burning oil was spreading. Once more the fireman was in difficulties, and although there was every incentive to get away as far as possible from the spreading burning oil, Boatswain Heiliger, swam to a life preserver in the vicinity and brought it to the exhausted fireman. Some forty five minutes later both men were rescued by a patrol boat.  But for the brave actions of Boatswain Heiliger, in going to the help of his shipmate, there is little doubt that he would have lost his live.
