More about John Barrie Findlay Mann

John B F Mann was the son of Mr John Mill Mann and Mrs Christina A Mann of 17 Clepington Street, Dundee and the brother of Agnes G Mann. He lived at 4 Gladstone Place, Kirriemuir and his rank is given as Second Officer in the Dundee Roll of Honour. The SS Queen Eugene was on passage from New York to Calcutta, 23 miles north of Cani Rocks, Tunisia when she was torpedoed by the German submarine UC-67. Thirty five men died in the sinking. Nine, including John Mann, are commemorated on the Tower Hill Memorial in London and the remaining twenty six and listed on the Hong Kong Memorial to Merchant Seamen.

John was the brother of Nursing Sister Agnes Grieg Mann, who also died at sea when she was aboard the Hospital Ship Salta, which struck a mine of Le Harve on 10 April 1917 and sank with the loss of 130 people.
