About this artwork

The hospital ship Llandovery Castle was hit by a torpedo from German submarine U-86 on June 27, 1918, off the coast of southern Ireland, taking the lives of 234, the highest number of casualties caused by the sinking of a hospital ship. Shortly thereafter, the submarine surfaced and gunned down most of the survivors; only 24 were rescued.
