Call air Cladach Ile (The Loss on Islay's Shore)

The story of two sea tragedies that brought the First World War to the Hebrides. In February 1918, the troopship Tuscania was torpedoed by a German U-boat. More than 200 American soldiers and British crew died as lifeboats were dashed against Islay's cliffs. Eight months later, HMS Otranto collided with another ship in its convoy in a fierce storm, killing nearly 500 men. Just 19 reached Islay's shore alive.
