I am so glad that I have found this web-page. My grandfather John Henry Hilton Goodale who died in1936, some years before I was born, was a merchant seaman on the SS Transylvania and was on board when it was Torpedoed. I have a copy of his payslip showing that he joined the ship on 19 Sept 1916 and was signed off on 14 May 1917. He was one of the lucky ones in that he was rescued, but I often wonder how the experience affected him in his every day life. He married my grandmother (his 2nd wife...his first wife died in 1912) in 1918 and they went on to have 4 sons, one of which was my Dad William Goodale.

This poem/card about the sinking of the Transylvania has been shown in earlier posts, but this one was sent home by a local man in the Welsh Reg't who survived.

Sad to say but he was later killed in Palestine in 1918.
