My Grandfather was one of the survivors of the Tuscania. As I recollect, he told stories of how the Irishmen came to his daring rescue. My Grandpa was Mike Guthrie, he was in the 20th Engineers, Company F of the U.S. Army. His family was Irish and sometimes spelled their surname "Guttry." He lived a long life in Deer River, Minnesota, and worked for the U.S. Forestry Service.

I will try and find a picture of my Grandfather to contribute to your site.

In 1921 the town of Bismark, Oklahoma was renamed “Wright City” to honor his memory.

My Great Uncle, William W. Wright 20th Engineers Co. F, unfortunately did not survive the sinking of the Tuscania. His hometown, Bismark, Oklahoma was renamed Wright City, Oklahoma in his memory. I am in possession of the Photographic Album of the American Soldiers' Graves in Islay sent by the The Glasgow Islay Association to the grieving families in America in 1918. It details the plans of the monument to be built at Mull of Oa. Many thanks to this community for their concern for my relative. This is a great website.

Victor Bjork came to America on April 10, 1905 aboard the Steam Ship Caronia. George and his brother Anton Bjork arrived in America on May 3, 1907 aboard the SS "Caronia," George was age 15 at that time. Helga and her mother Sofia Bjork came to America in 1909.

When George was inducted into the US Army he listed his brother Victor as his next of kin, whom was living at the time in St. Helens, Oregon. Most of the Bjork family, including George, resided in Polson, Montana.

My great uncle George Nelson Bjork, from Polson, Montana, located in Flathead County was a U.S. Army soldier in the 6th Battalion 20th Engineers, Company F. He was killed February 5th, 1918 due to Enemy Action in the North Channel Sea. The S.S. Tuscania, a troopship carrying over two thousand U.S. Army troops to Europe was struck by a German U-boat torpedo. George escaped the sinking ship by lifeboat, but like many of the lifeboats that evening, the sea carried them to the hostile rocky shoreline of the Island of Islay. It was here that many lifeboats struck the rocks with such force as to rip apart the lifeboats into useless kindling. The waves hurdling the men into the sharp unmitigated towering boulders that laid before them. It was here that most men whom escaped by lifeboat met their doom.

I am searching for my uncle Irvin Sims who was on the Tuscania when it went down in 1918. I visited the Isle of Islay to try to find his grave in the late 80’s. I went to Port Charlotte and to the Kilnaughton Cemetery. BUT his grave was not there, I was informed that some were removed to places in England. I was in the area of the Brookwood Cemetery, but never dreamed he was buried there.

I was told the ladies of Islay took very tender care of the soldiers. A thousand thanks for sending me this valuable information.
