The sinking of Glenart Castle
Today, 26 February, marks 100 years since the British hospital ship HMHS Glenart Castle, sunk after being torpedoed by a German U-boat. Only 32 people survived and more than 160 were killed. The Commission commemorates more than 150 service men and women who died, including eight nurses.
