    Survivors of the British liner ship 'Arabia', sunk by German subs, at Queenstown.

  • Description

    Footage showing survivors of the British liner ship 'Arabia' that was sunk by German submarines in November 1916, at Queenstown.

    Item opens with M/S of an old man in a street, walking with a cane and carrying a suitcase. A group of men and boys pose for the camera. We see the backs of a group of men who are standing in a group and talking or examining something. One of the men has a bandage on his head. A group of children pose for the camera - they seem to be brothers and sisters.

    U-Boats; unrestricted submarine warfare

    Cataloguer's note: it is not clear which Queenstown this is - Ireland?

    Modified WPA record.
