I've been watching your site for many years now. My grandfather was Paul Malloy, I never knew him as he died in 1950 when my dad was in high school. The Tuscania story was one that my dad told me and my brothers when we were younger. Your site has sort of made history come alive for us. Back in 1918 the Tuscania was an enormous story but I think people have pretty much forgotten it. I think my grandfather left the Tuscania on the HMS Pigeon but I am not sure, as my father said he was rescued by the last destroyer that came alongside the Tuscania. Have you ever come across any information relating to what individuals were picked up by which destroyer...Pigeon, Mosquito, etc...?

My dad (Frank W. Bayliss) was one of the survivors of the Tuscania when it was sunk by a German U-Boat on February 5, 1918. On February 5, 1928 (just a few months after I was born), an article appeared in the Milwaukee (Wis.) Journal showing a well-rendered painting of that sinking. It was drawn by D. Macpherson, who was a staff artist for the London Sphere and happened to be a few miles inland the night of the disaster. (The ship went down just five miles off the coast of Lough Swilly, Ireland.) The picture that appeared in the newspaper was submitted by my dad. He was always proud of that clipping and to this day, I have it under "glass."

Two years later, on February 2, 1930 another article appeared in the Milwaukee Journal. It was taken from the log of German Submarine and and included a letter from its Captain to Wisconsin survivors. It gives for the first time a complete account of the "12-year-old wartime tragedy in which 200 American soldiers perished.

It was a traumatic event, my father Frank Bayliss had water phobia after all that. His wife's name was Rose, and they are both buried at Wood National Cemetery in Wisconsin. He wound up with three children, Bev, Bill, and Judi (that's me). It's nice to know that after all this time someone is still remembering the Tuscania, and those who were on it. Thank You.

I came upon this by accident. Bev Bayliss is a good friend of mine. I know how much her father meant to her. So I just wanted to post that. I can't imagine what it was like for the survivors of the Tuscania but I know it was difficult.
