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].

Clan Farquhar

Clan Farquhar was a 5,858 GRT steam cargo ship completed in 1899 by W.Doxford & Sons for The Clan Line Steamers Ltd. and managed by Cayzer, Irvine & Co. She was sunk on 26 February 1917 by torpedo fired by German submarine UB-43 at position 33° 30' N, 20° 05' E - approximately 80 nautical miles East of Benghazi. She was en route from Calcutta to London with a general cargo.

According to Charles Hocking [35]:

At about 2:40 PM on the 26th when zig-zagging at 10 knots ... the vessel was struck on the starboard side by a torpedo. The explosion was terrific and the Clan Farquhar foundered in five minutes. Only two boats got away, it being impractical to launch the others owing to the list. Captain Hayward and six officers, as well as 42 lascar seamen lost their lives. The submarine which appeared to be Austrian took the second engineer on board as a prisoner. The first officer Mr. C.C. Parfitt, and the remainder of the crew, were picked up by the British naval ship Verbena and landed at Malta.
