About the memorial: This CWGC overlooks Machir Bay, Islay & contains the bodies, known & unknown, of those who perished in the two shipping disasters of 1918. One of the ships involved, HMS Otranto, was beached in Machir Bay thus the site of the cemetery. These two disasters led to the erection of the Oa monument by the American Red Cross. Originally many of the American soldiers who died were interred here but their bodies repatriated at the end of the war.
