More about A Marnie
According to H.M.S.Bulwark crew list for November 1914, there was no A. Marnie listed as being on board the vessel.
H.M.S. Bulwark was attached to the Channel Fleet, conducting patrols in the English Channel. On 26 November 1914 while anchored at Sheerness she was destroyed by a large internal explosion with the loss of 736 men. There were only 14 survivors of the explosion and of these, 2 died later in Hospital. The explosion was believed to have been caused by the overheating of Cordite charges that had been placed adjacent to a boiler room bulkhead.
