I seem to recall it was a submarine disaster, everyone on board died of poisoning or summit? I assume it was built at Cammel Lairds, hence there being a memorial at the priory?

Yes, 1939. My dad who, was a liner-off at Lairds, worked on it. Every man who died in it has his own plaque on the staircase of the tower. The top of the tower is one of the best viewpoints in Birkenhead.


Carpe diem.
