Evening

is there a comment in the margin ? (just wondering what the symbol next to the RAMC on Parker and the record below indicates).

Strikes me that that has been commented on in another thread as a way that the 'clerk' indicates the record has been checked but I can't track sown where it was I saw it!

 

Why do your think it says RAMC?

 

George

My typo - should say RMLI.

I don't think it will help the search but I suspect it's a T not a J looking at Thomas Steel and John Abbott. But as there are no Parker records anyway...

Do we know the units that were onboard at the time? Could that give us a lead? And I suppose there isn't a 'passenger' list as it was an RN ship

Going through the casualty list there were 33 members of the Royal Marine Light Infantry.

Its all latin to me George,

Dai, I came across all the Connemara casualties death certs, and why they are not recognised is beyond me. As I remember, besides the crew and other army personnel, one particular Army Captain died on it with his family and he is the only one remembered.

Apologies for not coming back sooner but I was shampling some raspberry and apple wine, thatsh 18 proof and rather easy to dhrink. Two glasses ( they wern't small) nd I am away with the fairies, and I don't even believe in them! At a euro a bottle you don't mind spending the money if you get the quality.

Thanks for all the help lads!

Kind regards.

 Tom.

The closest name among LAURENTIC casualties is  Steward Ernest G PARK, an MMR rating.

This may be a complete red herring, but CWGC has a James Parker RMLI of HMS ORAMA, died 01/02/1917, for whom I can find nothing in Discovery.

 

Could he have been accidentally lumped in with Laurentic's casualties at some point?
