For those you aren’t aware of this, my major free-time activity is researching world War I at sea, especially U-boat operations. It involves a later war obviously that what I usually work on, but the Raleigh News & Observer had a very nice article earlier this week on the sinking of the armed trawler HMS Bedfordshire, which was torpedoed and sunk with all hands by the German submarine U 558 off the Outer Banks 70 years ago today. The bodies of four of the crew of the trawler washed up on shore and are buried at the British Cemetery on Ocracoke.
