                        Not ‘celebrated’ but he certainly gained notoriety in Canada.

                        On June 27th, 1918, Llandovery Castle, on a voyage from Halifax to Liverpool, was torpedoed and sunk by the German submarine U-86 (Helmut Patzig), 116 miles west of Fastnet. Patzig, aware of his error (torpedoeing a hospital ship), decided to kill the witnesses and machinegunned the survivors who escaped in 3 lifeboats.

                        Of the total of 258 (164 crew, 80 officers and men of the Canadian Medical Corps, 14 nurses), only 24 were rescued in the sole lifeboat afloat by destroyer HMS Lysander. (from www.wrecksite.eu)
