Those interested in naval history might be interested to know that today, 21st February 2017, marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the troopship S.S.Mendi, the greatest South African military disaster and one of the 20th century's worst maritime disasters, during which 616 South African officers and men lost their lives.
