City of Benares 17 September 1940

September 17 is the 75th anniversary of the sinking of the City of Benares and the death (in the morning of the next day) of Michael Rennie, son of the Vicar of St Jude's.

The Mersyside Maritime Museum currently has a wonderful online exhibition about the story and a blog entry recording the author's visit to St Jude's.
