Women and Children of the R.M.S. Leinster Restored to History
On 10 October 1918, the Irish ship RMS Leinster was torpedoed and sunk in the Irish Sea, with the loss of over 560 lives. Philip Lecane’s book tells the story of the women and children who were aboard the ship. They include the stewardesses, military and civilian nurses, members of the recently formed Women’s Royal Naval Service (the Wrens) and civilian passengers, including three women on honeymoon. The book also looks at the children who were on the ship. Some were the children of military personnel, others were the daughters and sons of civilians. In appendices, the book identifies the lifeboats in which particular people survived and tells the story of a young American sailor who was lost in the sinking. Our Price: : €15.00

RMS Lusitania. The Story of a Wreck
The RMS Lusitania was the largest and fastest ocean-going liner in the world when built in 1912 - a wonder of the age. Given the dramatic circumstances of its loss its fame is second only to that of the RMS Titanic. Much has been written on the history of the ship - its tragic sinking with great loss of life as well as the mysteries and controversies surrounding the speed of its sinking; whether or not it was carrying contraband goods and its legitimacy as a target of war. This book provides a fresh approach to the story by drawing on new research, a multitude of available sources, state-of-the-art 3D multibeam imagery of the wreck and documents the 2015 commemorative events marking the centenary of the loss of this once great liner. Our Price: : €20.00
