Vessels Lost in WW2 Recorded on the Memorial at Tower Hill

This page includes basic information about the ships and how they were lost, a photo of the relevant panel(s) of the Tower Hill Memorial and information about those that lost their lives extracted from the CWGC database. In the table I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as this seems appropriate to me. In some cases further family information about the individuals may be available on the CWGC website [7].

Malakand

She was a 7,649 grt steam cargo ship that was in Huskisson Dock Liverpool and loaded with munitions during an air raid on 3 May 1941. A fire in the dock sheds spread and the ship caught fire. Attempts to put the fire out failed and she blew up on 4 May 1941 destroying Huskisson No. 2 dock. Although the Malakand explosion is often attributed to a burning barrage balloon, the fire the balloon started was put out before it could affect the ship
