The Lusitania and Megan’s Story

March 28 in News by admin .

     

Lusitania: World War I (1914-1918) was a crazy four year long, trench conflict, in which neither side appeared to be able to break the stalemate. In the end, greater numbers won the war for the Allies, after the USA joined in 1917. There were a number of reasons for US joining the war. One of the chief reasons was the German torpedoing of the US passenger liner RMS Lusitania, on Fri. 7/May/1915, just 11 miles (18 Kilometres) off Ireland’s Old Head of Kinsale, with 1,198 passengers on board. This was all part of the submarine warfare. One of the 124 Americans, who drowned was Mr. Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt (1877-1915), a millionaire sportsman, who gave his own life-belt to Alice Middleton, a young woman, before floating out to sea. His body, they say, was never found. Read on!  T.O’L.
