HMT Royal Edward

HMT Royal Edward

HMT Royal Edward brought Canadian troops to Europe before being used as an internment ship for three years anchored off Southend-on-Sea in Essex. She then saw service as a troop ship and was torpedoed by German submarine UB-14 on 13 August 1915, sinking from the stern in just 6 minutes. Figures vary, with at least 864 lives known to have been lost, and at least 661 rescued.
