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].

Malda

Malda was a 7,884 GRT steam passenger/cargo ship completed in 1913 by Barclay, Curle & Co. Ltd. for British India Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. She was sunk on 25 August 1917 by torpedo fired by German submarine U-70 approximately 130 nautical miles West by South of Bishop Rock. She was en route from Boston to London with a general cargo.

According to Charles Hocking [35]:

The liner Malda, Capt. Charles Davidson, was torpedoed by a German submarine 130 miles from the Bishop Rock, Scilly Isles, on August 25th, 1917. The attack took place at 1.40 p.m. in a north-westerly gale, the ship being struck on the port side and the engine-room flooded. She did not sink at once, however, and the submarine surfaced and endeavoured to contact the boats but could not make her demands known owing to the gale. Capt. Davidson set course for the Scillies but was picked up by a ship in an eastbound convoy and landed at Milford Haven. Meanwhile the first officer's boat found the Malda still afloat and stood by in the hope of boarding her next morning, but the submarine again came on the scene and forced the boat to sail away. By morning the Malda had foundered.

The boats reached land at various places and it was first reported that seven men had lost their lives, four of them were killed by the explosion, one died from exposure in the boats, and the remaining two were lost overboard. An official report published later, however, gave the number of lives lost as 64.

Maloja

Maloja was a 12,431 GRT steam passenger/cargo ship (ref) completed in YYY by Harland & Wolff Ltd. for Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co. She sank on 27 February 1916 after striking a mine laid by German submarine UC-6 at position 51° 05' N, 01° 19' E - approximately 2 nautical miles South-West of the Dover pier. She was en route from London to Bombay with passengers and a general cargo.

According to Charles Hocking [35]:

The P. & O. liner Maloja, Cdre. C. E. Irving, R.N.R., the largest ship in the company's fleet, left London on Saturday, February 26th 1916 for Bombay with 456 persons, of whom 121 were passengers. On the 27th at about 10.30 a.m. she struck a mine two miles S.W. of Dover Pier and foundered in a very short time, taking with her 155 of those on board. The engines were reversed to take the way off the ship and enable the remaining boats to be lowered, but the engine room flooded and the engines could not be stopped. The Maloja therefore continued to go astern for some time at eight or nine knots and with a list of some 75 degrees. The Canadian liner Empress of Fort William, 2,181 tons, Capt. W. D. Shepherd, endeavoured to render assistance, but was herself mined. The crew of this ship escaped without loss.

Malvina

Malvina was a 1,182 GRT compound-engined cargo ship completed in 1879 by J. & G. Thomson for London & Edinburgh Shipping Co. She was sunk on 2 August 1918 but the cause seems to be in doubt. Early references suggest sinking by torpedo fired by German submarine U-104 approximately 1 nautical miles North-North-East of Flamborough Head. She was en route from London to Lieth with a general cargo. The Chief Officer was sure the cause was a torpedo rather than a mine. The wreck was discovered in 1985 and it was entangled with the wreck of UB-111. The website uboat.net [2] asserts that U-104 was not the cause of the loss.
