Millions of men were in involved in the Great War and countless numbers remembered and honoured with pride around the world. However, my personal research shows hat there are probabaly more souls forgotten because their stories have been lost in the fog of time, the 616 men of the South African Native Labour Corps (SANLC) and the 30 crew who perished on the "S.S. Mendi" fall into this category. This is shocking, especially when you consider this tradegy accounted for South Africa's single greatest loss of life in the Great War and its location just 11 miles from our British shores!
