Remembered Today:

HMS Q1 / Perugia


Recommended Posts

Hello all

Can anyone help me please. I know Q1 was sunk in the Genoa Gulf on 3 Dec 1916.

Were there casualties and does anyone have a photo. Were the ships logs put overboard like the code books?

Thanks and a Happy New Year to all

Answering my own question in part after a visit to Kew

One senior stoker and 7 stokers were killed in the Uboat attack. The rest of the crew were rescued by the French Navy.

Still after a photo

My Grandfather was a gunner on Q1 from her comissioning until she was sunk. The rescued crew were, apparently, in the water again after the vessel that picked them up was also torpedoed the same day.
