Manx fishermen remembered as heroes

Manx fishermen were commemorated as war heroes in the west of the Island on Sunday.

It's a hundred years since the Wanderer, a Peel fishing boat, was first to respond to the sinking of the Lusitania, torpedoed off Ireland on her way to America.

The seven crew aboard the Wanderer were able to save more than 150 people from the wreckage.

A special service was held at the RNLI Lifeboat House in Peel at noon, led by Bishop Robert Paterson with the Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood and the President of Tynwald Clare Christian among the congregation.

A flotilla of craft sailed out of the bay and placed poppies on the sea.
