Uploader's Notes: Daughter of late Lieutenant Governor (Nova Scotia) D.C. and Bessie G. Fraser of 1710 Fort St., Victoria, British Columbia. The Hospital Ship Llandovery Castle, bound from Halifax, Nova Scotia, for Liverpool, was torpedoed on June 27th, 1918, 114 miles southwest of the Fastnet Rock by U-86. Despite regulation Red Cross lights, the ship was deliberately torpedoed and most survivors, including 14 nursing sisters, were machine gunned. The Llandovery Castle became the rallying cry for Canadian troops during the Last 100 Days offensive.
