Additional Notes

1. In the 1914-18 list, Cyril Hoey is reported to have died in the SS "Belgium Prince". The S.S. "Belgian Prince", a Merchant Vessel of 4765 tons, was hit by a torpedo from an U Boat U55, commanded by Kapitšnleutnant Wilhelm Werner on the 31st July 1917, 175 miles N by NW from Tory Island. 39 lives were lost and the Master, Harry Hassan made prisoner. She was sunk the next day by scuttling charges. Read the shocking story.
