Hi Joe
Thank you so much for the info and it's good to take part in such a great website. It would seem likely that it was the Queenborough that was sunk by Crusemann, wouldn't it. The family story is that the Queenborough was minesweeping but I have no evidence of this, it could just have been fishing. I suppose there must be a list of ships that were requsistioned by the admiralty????

I know that unrestricted submarine warfare was declared again by Germany on 1st Feb. 1917, so would the Queenborough have been sunk without warning? So many questions - I'm like a 'sponge' at the moment, so interested in any new sources that might have some answers.

I have visited the Tower Hill Memorial a few times and seen Great Grandfathers name inscribed on the wall. It's certainly a very moving place with so many names recorded.

Anyway Joe, thanks so much for your prompt reply, really appreciate it.
Regards
debbie
