'Dr. Macaura...addressing a recruiting rally', c1915, (1933). 'Dr. Macaura, who had raised a considerable amount of money for our mine sweepers, addressing a recruiting rally from the salvaged boat, whose mute eloquence stirred the crowds to generosity'. On 7 May 1915, the RMS 'Lusitania' was torpedoed by a German submarine off the south of Ireland, with the loss of 1,198 lives. Although unarmed, she was carrying munitions. The sinking presaged the United States declaration of war on Germany two years later. From "The Pageant of the Century". [Odhams Press Ltd, 1933]
