Victory Bonds Will Help Stop This - 3g12169

On June 27, 1918, during one of the worst war atrocities of WWI, a German submarine torpedoed the Canadian hospital ship Llandovery Castle. To cover up the incident, the U-boat captain ordered the lifeboats to be rammed and the survivors machined-gunned in the water. The submarine overlooked one lifeboat containing 24 survivors.

Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States widely spread the survivors' account of the sinking and the death of the 234 doctors, nurses and patients aboard the ship.
