|The upturned hull of HMS Natal before it was broken up and salvaged; remainder was then rendered so as not to be a hazard to shipping. A marker buoy (see below) now marks the location.|
|The commemorative garden in Invergordon with various monuments as shown below.|
1) - Left-hand picture shows the commemorative plaque
2) - Right; Invergordon Museum volunteers showing part of a silver cup won by the crew in a shooting competition, salvaged from the ship.
1) - Left-hand photo; part of the Chatham Naval Memorial
showing the names of the three Nursing Sisters who perished. They would
have been SRNs and therefore commissioned officers, perhaps Lieutenants.
2) - Right; said to be SS Drina, a Royal Staem Packet ship, before it became a hospital ship. As a hospital ship it would have been painted white with a large red cross on each side and on the funnel. As HMHS Drina it was later sunk off Milford Haven on 1st March 1917, even though it was a hospital ship. Perhaps it was not marked as such.
