Panel 20. See also Illogan War Memorial

Note: H.M.S. Prize was a "Q" Ship. The Prize embarked on its final patrol in early August 1917. Sailing into the Atlantic under a Swedish flag, the ship was accompanied by a British submarine, the HMS D-6. It was intended that the D-6 would submerge and observe the Prize throughout the day. When an enemy ship was sighted, the crew of the Prize would place discrete signals in the rigging to indicate the ship's position to the watching D-6. The submarine would then attempt to move into a position where it could torpedo the approaching enemy. On 13 August 1917, a lookout spotted the UB-48. Sanders opted to use the guns of the Prize to shell the U-boat; the UB-48 was undamaged and it submerged to evade the attack. The Prize and D-6 remained on station. Later that evening, the D-6 heard an explosion. At dawn it surfaced but no trace was found of the Prize or her crew. It was presumed that the UB-48 had torpedoed the sailing ship, sinking her and the crew. [Source: Wikipedia - HMS Prize]
