    Seeking survivor accounts of sinking of SS Virginia

    Joseph DiDomenico Newbie

      My Grandfather was killed in the attack on the SS Virginia (Merchant Marine) on 12 May 1942. I have conducted a bit of research and am looking for a reference where the survivors summarized the accounts of the attack. In multiple secondary sources, they refer to Burch HA (1942a) Summary of Statements by Survivors of the SS VIRGINIA, American Tanker. Navy Department, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations. May 16.  How and where can I find this record group? Is it in the National Archives or elsewhere? How might I be able to order a copy of these accounts? Thanks in advance!
