BHC 300003 First World War Poster - Irishmen, Avenge the Lusitania!

Ref: BHC 300003

RMS Lusitania was an ocean liner owned by the Cunard Line and built by John Brown and Company of Clydebank, Scotland, torpedoed by a German U-boat on May 7, 1915. The ship sank in just 18 minutes, eight miles (15 km) off the Old Head of Kinsale, Ireland, killing 1,198 of the 1,959 people aboard. The sinking turned public opinion in many countries against Germany, and was probably a major factor in the eventual decision of the United States to join the war in 1917. It is considered, along with the sinking of MV Wilhelm Gustloff and the Titanic, one of the most notable civilian passenger liner disasters.
