More about Patrick Ward

Patrick has no known grave but is remembered on the Tower Hill Memorial.

The Corsican Prince left Dundee on 6th February 1917 bound for Dunkirk with a cargo of timber. The following day she was just off Whitby when she was torpedoed by German Submarine UB-34. The crew of 31 took to the lifeboats with Patrick apparently drowning during the evacuation of his ship.
