About the memorial:
Whether Admiral George Winthrop was particularly close to his brother Hay is not clear, but he called one of his sons by that name. Hay was born in 1876 and when he grew up joined the Royal Navy too. As a lieutenant, Hay was assigned to the Condor a sail/single screw steel 980-ton sloop, built at Sheerness and launched 17 December 1898. One can guess that Hay was please when he joined the Condor on her first commission.HMS Shearwater sister ship to the Condor
Under the command of Captain Clifton Scalter, the Condor had left England bound for duties in the Pacific arriving at Esquimalt, Victoria, British Columbia in November 1901. She left there for Honolulu on 2 December 1901 where she was due to arrive on 3 January 1902. The day after they left a fierce storm blew up, it is believed that all hands perished.
