Note: HMS CLAN McNAUGHTON, was an armed merchant cruiser, lost 3rd February 1915, in the Atlantic. She was a pre-war merchant ship, which was requisitioned in November 1914 when she returned to her home port of Tilbury. She was then hastily converted into something she was never intended to be - a warship, which would have included mounting guns up on deck - well above her normal centre of gravity. A ad-hoc crew were then cobbled together for her: Career RN officers, although her engineer officers had all been Merchant Navy, some career RN Ratings, but many of the rest of her crew were reservists including some men from Newfoundland, one or two RN pensioners, plus no less than 50 boys straight out of the training shore base at Shotley, H.M.S. Ganges. All in all, an odd-ball crew who would have been completely unfamiliar with the ship and how she sailed.

She sailed for patrol duties in the North Atlantic a few days before Christmas 1914, but had to put into Liverpool on the way, for some problem to be sorted. She returned to Liverpool certainly once, perhaps twice before her loss in February 1915. She was in radio contact at about 6 a.m. on the morning of 3rd February 1915 and reported terrible weather conditions. Nothing further was ever heard of her. Some floating wreckage was found about fortnight later in the approximate area of her last known position but it could not be identified as having come from her. The truth is that no one knows for certain what did happen to her.

In loving memory of Private G.R.Reynolds
Dearly loved son of F. and H. Reynolds
Who was killed in action on September 13th 1917
Aged 30 years
"Somewhere in France"

He bravely answered his country's call,
He has given his life for one and all,
An unknown grave is the bitterest blow
None but aching hearts can know.

But he has gone beyond the sunset,
Far from the cruel war and strife,
Where no bugle call can reach him,
I a land of pure delight.
