Captain Loxley of the Formidable, WW1 bravery

Clear Off - Submarines About: Captain Loxley of the Royal Navy, his terrier Bruce by his side, pictured giving his last order to another ship, warning of the danger of torpedoes. Captain Loxley was in command of the HMS Formidable which was struck by a torpedo in the English Channel in the early hours of New Year's morning, 1915. The Captain remained on the bridge as the ship sank, eventually giving the order that the crew evacuate. He remained there, his faithful dog by his side, and was last seen with arms folded as the boat sank beneath the water. Reproduction of a painting by C M Padday in Great War Deeds, a special panorama supplement produced by the Illustrated London News in 1915, featuring heroic actions of the First World War. Date: 1915

Germans showing guns on the Lusitania 1915

The sinking of the Cunard ocean liner RMS Lusitania occurred on 7 May 1915 during the First World War, by a German U-boat, hitting the Lusitania twice with torpedoes, sinking within 18 minutes, killing 1198 passengers. Germany released a false statement that the Lusitania carried guns, with two quick-fires behind armoured-shields are shown on the upper deck forward, on either side of the forecastle near bows.
