This kind of disasters are usually "forgotten" when they happen in wartime. Very much like the Leoppoldville (a belgian ship that sunk with nearly 800 american soldiers).

Never heard before of that casualty of war, but I knew that after Dunkirk, the sole large BEF unit who kept on fighting on the Continent was the 51st "Highland" Division, heavily bled on River Somme in June, and who evacuated from Brittany about at that date. I suppose that's why the Scots seem so concerned about that tragedy.

 

RIP :salute:
