SS Arandora Star

Posted by:

This year we mark the 75th anniversary of the sinking of MV Arandora Star and the loss of over 800 persons. There will be a commemorative service at the memorial plaque, details to be announced.  In the meantime, military historian Alan Davis (author of Colonsay’s Fallen) will be in Colonsay at Easter and intending to mount a small exhibition at COHT to remind us of this tragedy.  Incidentally, Alan has provided an extraordinary resource online, including details of all who lost their lives including the ship’s company, the military escort, the Prisoners of War and the civilian internees.  See
