History

The New York Times: July 1 , 1915

The British steamer Scottish Monarch bound from New York for Manchester with a cargo of sugar was torpedoed and sunk yesterday.

The Captain of the Scottish Monarch says that his vessel was about 40 miles south of Ballycotton when at 2 o'clock in the morning two submarines were sighted. The steamer fled at full speed but was soon overhauled. The submarines began firing without warning.

The crew took to the boats and stood by until 7 o'clock when after thirty four shells had been fired and the Scottish Monarch was afire fore and aft she sank.
