I made an error in an earlier post about the Lusitania graveyard also containing the remains of British submariners lost on the A-1, which was the first British sub to be lost.

I should have said the submarine A-5 (whose disaster occurred at much the same time), not the A-1.

It is the A-5 victims who are buried at the Old Church cemetery in Cobh, close to the Lusitania graves.

I think because the A-1 was on a dummy attack against the cruiser Juno [of Lusitania fame] that my memory played tricks.

The story of the A-5 is told here:

Just wanted to correct the record.
