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].

Joseph Chamberlain

Joseph Chamberlain was a 3,709 GRT steam cargo ship completed in 1910 by W. Gray & Co. Ltd. for Joseph Chamberlain Steamship Co. Ltd. From 1917 the records show her as having changed owner to W.& C.T.Jones Steamship Co. Ltd. and her name to Aigwen but it seems likely that these changes were overtaken by her loss. She was sunk on 18 September 1917 by torpedo fired by German submarine UB-62 approximately 50 nautical miles North by West of Muckle Flugga. She was en route from Archangel to Dieppe with a cargo of timber.

Justicia

Justicia was a 32,234 GRT steam-turbined driven passenger ship completed in 1917 by Harland & Wolff Ltd. for Oceanic Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. She was subject to two attacks by submarines:

  • 19 July 1918: She was damaged by torpedo fired by German submarine UB-64 approximately 20 nautical miles West by North of Skerrygore. She was taken under tow. There were no fatalities on this occasion. She was en route from Liverpool to New York in ballast.
  • 20 July 1918: She was sunk while under tow by torpedo firee by UB-124 at position 55° 38' N, 07° 39' W - approximately 11 nautical miles North-North-West of Inistrahull. On this occasion 10 seamen lost their lives.

According to Charles Hocking [35]:

The liner Justicia was built by Harland & Wolff for the HOlland-Amerika Line as the Statendam, but the British Government took her over before completion for war service. On Friday July 19th 1918 when off the N.W. coast of Ireland, bound from Liverpoool to New York in convoy, she was attacked by German submarines. At 2:30 PM the first torpedo struck her in the engine room and at 4:30 two more torpedoes were fired, one of which missed and the other was diverted by gunfire. At 8 PM the Justicia was taken in tow and shortly afterwards a fourth torpedo was discharged but gunfire again proved successful in diverting the aim. The next morning at 4:30 a fifth torpedo was discharged but missed. Finally at 9:15 AM on July 20th two torpedoes struck her on the port side in way of Nos. 3 and 5 holds. These proved fatal and the Justicia sank stern first at 12:40 PM. At the time of the attack she was carrying from 600 to 700 crew but no passengers. The third engineer and 15 of the engine room staff were killed, the survivors were taken off by the escorting ships. H.M. destroyer Marne succeeded in sinking one of the submarines.
