That photo of the Gloucester Castle sinking is the same Gloucester Castle that was sunk in 1942 with our Lou on board and went down taking a friend , Joe Farnworth of Bolton,

Hospital ship Gloucester Castle down by the stern after being torpedoed by the U-boat UB-32 off the Isle of Wight, 31 March 1917

HMHS Gloucester Castle (His Majestys Hospital Ship) was a steam ship originally built for the Union-Castle Line, but requisitioned for use as a British hospital ship during the First World War. She was, however, salvaged, and returned to civilian service after the war. She was sunk again by the German commerce raider Michel off Ascension Island in the South Atlantic in 1942. more on wikipedia
