                10. HMHS Llandovery Castle

                On 27 June 1918, the Canadian hospital ship HMHS Llandovery Castle was torpedoed off southern Ireland by U-86. When the Llandovery Castles crew took to the lifeboats, U-86 surfaced, ran down all the lifeboats except one and shot at the people in the water. Only the 24 people in the remaining lifeboat survived. They were rescued shortly afterwards and testified to what had happened. In total, 234 were killed. (wiki)

                      13. SMS Magdeburg

                      Magdeburg was possibly Germany’s most important loss of the war. She ran aground in the Baltic whilst minelaying and was then destroyed by Russian cruisers. Importantly the German code books were captured by the Russians and then passed on to the British who put them to good use as part of their intelligence effort.
