It is appropriate at this time to remember all those who were lost when HMT Royal Edward was sunk by torpedo en-route to Gallipoli on 13th August 1915.

The initial list of troops lost was published in The Times newspaper in September 1915 and was amazingly accurate in the circumstances.

In order to support the medal review campaign initiated by David Crampin and Jack Carlson, detailed research has been undertaken to establish a definitive list of the troops who were lost. The various lists previously available all seemed to contain some inaccuracies or inconsistencies and it is hoped that these have been addressed.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the significant loss of life and to pay tribute to all involved, no matter what their positon or reason for being on board, a list of the names and regiments of the 866 troops lost has been published via The Gallipoli Association’s website.
