THE SINKING OF THE TROOPSHIP ROYAL EDWARD

13TH AUGUST 1915

The 18th Labour Company of the Army Service Corps were en route to Mudros on the Isle of Lemnos when their troopship Royal Edward was sunk by a German torpedo on 13th August 1915.

The Royal Edward had set sail from Avonmouth and made her first landfall at Alexandria, where she collected fresh supplies and more troops.  As she picked her way through the Dodecanese Islands she was attacked by U-14 and sank, with great loss of life, 6 miles west of Kandelioussa Island in the Gulf of Kos.

Another website about the Royal Edward:

From Norfolk to Gallipoli 

This list was compiled from two sources:

· report of the sinking of the Royal Edward in the West Briton newspaper, which listed men who were saved and those who were missing presumed dead

· Commonwealth War Graves Commission web site, which was searched for men belonging to the ASC

Some men are mentioned in both sources. We know about their place of work, where they lived, their children, their wives, how old they were. For others there is very little information – no one contributed information for these men when the Debt of Honour register was established after the war. Name, rank, serial number, date of death and their place of memorial is all we know about them.

The majority of the 18th Labour Company was from Cornwall, but there are some men from London and the surrounding counties. They are generally mature men, aged between 30 and 60. Many of them are married with large families to support. Some are former soldiers, who, no longer fit for active duty, were assigned to a service corps.

Most of the men died when the ship sank and their bodies were never found. Others survived the sinking only to die from the effects of exposure or from wounds a few days later. In a very few cases bodies were recovered by Allied ships and taken to Alexandria for burial. Some men came through this ordeal only to die at Gallipoli within a few months.
