About the memorial: Addition to gravestone. Headstone in Kilchattan Cemetery commemorating James McIntosh d. 1943 in the loss of HMS ‘Transylvania’. At 01.00 hours on 10 Aug 1940, HMS Transylvania (F 56) (Capt F.N. Miles, OBE, Rtd, RN) was hit aft of the stack by one G7e torpedo from U-56 about 40 miles northwest of Malin Head, Co. Donegal. The ship of the 10th Cruiser Squadron on Northern Patrol had been spotted by the U-boat only 15 minutes before and the Germans had to left her behind because they had no torpedoes left. The disabled vessel was taken in tow but later foundered, while nearby trawlers rescued about 300 officers and ratings assisted by HMS Ashanti (F 51) (Cdr W.G. Davis, RN). Three officers and 33 ratings were lost.
