There is little left of these three ships which were torpedoed in WW1

One was sunk and her sister stopped to pick up survivors and was also torpedoed, then the 3rd ship stopped to pick up survivors and she to was torpedoed! Bloody slow Lerners!

There was masive loss of life and this incedent forced the Royal Navy to change its operational procedur and to basicaly run away when one of its ships is torpedoed!

The irony of this disater was that after the war the wrecks were sold to a German salvage company!
