bullet  General Notes:

Ian Kyles visited Scotland for 3 months in 1937 with his mother.
They went to Scotland on the ship Letitia and came back on the Athenia.
The ship Athenia was later to become famous as it was the first ship to be sunk by the German U-boats at the beginning of World War II with the loss of about 118 lives.

(Sept. 3, 1939) The first civilian casualty of World War 11, the Cunard passenger liner Athenia of 13,581 tons, (chartered from the Anchor Donaldson Line) was sunk west of Scotland by the German submarine U-30 (Oblt.Fritz-Julius Lemp) on the opening day of the Second World War, the captain believing it to be an armed merchant cruiser. The ship was carrying evacuees from Liverpool to Canada. There were 1,103 passengers not including crewmembers. Survivors were rescued by the British destroyers Electra, Escort and Fame and the freighters City of Flint and Southern Cross, but 118 passengers were drowned. Also on board were 316 Americans of whom 28 were lost. Oblt. Lemp was never court-martialled for this error but next day Hitler ordered that under no circumstances were attacks to be made on passenger ships. The City of Flint (4,963 tons) was later torpedoed (on 25th. January, 1943) with the loss of seven lives. On May 9, 1941, Oblt. Lemp and fifteen of his crew were lost when the U-boat he then commanded, the U-110, was captured
