The ship was sailing from Kingstown to Holyhead in Wales and 567 people were killed as a result of the German attack. Twenty one of the 22 mail workers aboard were among those killed by the Germans and other victims included medical workers and ordinary civilians as well as Irish members of the armed forces fighting against the Kaiser's aggression.
The stamp was designed by Design HQ from art by Brian Palm and lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13.5. Rating:- ****. The issue highlights the importance of Ireland's historical links with Great Britain.
