William Taylor - HMS Formidable - Elswick

  • Description

    ELSWICK SURVIVOR FROM ILL-FATED FORMIDABLE. We publish a photo of one of the survivors of H.M.S. Formidable, which was lost in the English Channel early in the morning of New Year's Day, with such appalling loss of life. The fortunate man is Engine-room Artificer William Taylor, of 84, Greenhow Place, Elswick, Newcastle, who, no doubt, owes his safety to the splendid discipline and coolness exhibited by both officers and men when it was seen that the ship was doomed. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 5th of January 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images please comment below. Copies of this photograph may be ordered from us, for more information see: http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt" >www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt Please make a note of the image reference number above to help speed up your order.
