Awards for the loss of HMT TRANSYLVANIA

Recommended Posts

Sgt Stripes

Hello. I am looking for information into awards made to any men or women , who were onboard HMT TRANSYLVANIA when she was lost on May 4 1917. I believe Major Thomas Hubert Barclay Surrey Yeomanry, was posthumously award the silver board of trade medal for gallantry in saving life at sea and I also believe that Trooper J W Magnusson was posthumously was awarded the Albert medal   . Many Thanks

Also a Captain R A HILL, Royal Irish Regiment, was awarded the Board of Transport Sea Gallantry Medal for his actions on Transylvania on 4 May 1917.

Somewhere I have a note of Enquiries into sinkings such as this but can't find the Kew series which has a file for each loss. These often have detail of any awards. I shall make time to go through my many notebooks and find a ref to start from, it must have been at least 5 years ago that I first found this series.
