Respect Paid To Two Troop Ships Sunk During World War I

Posted on May 4, 2018

More than 200 US soldiers died when the Tuscania was torpedoed by a German U-boat off Islay in February in 1918. Eight months later, the Otranto went down after a collision in a terrible storm, with about 500 lives lost. A ceremony was conducted on-board Royal Navy patrol boat HMS Raider. A wreath was laid by Lord George Robertson of Port Ellen – whose grandfather was the police sergeant on the island when both ships sank.
