Roll of Honour. Amongst those who lost their lives in
the Otranto-Kashmir collision was Chief Petty Officer
Charles Henry Hacking of this Island. The deceased, who
was in his 40th year, was formerly in the P & O Line
but at the outbreak of war the ship he was serving on
was commandeered by the Government and since that time
he had many exciting experiences. On two occasions his
ship was torpedoed and he narrowly escaped with his life.
He leaves a widow and daughter to mourn his loss, to whom
with the other members of the family we tender our heartfelt
details from the CWGC
