The committee offers its sincerest thanks to Captain Arthur R. Moore for allowing us to use his book, A Careless Word ... a Needless Sinking as a reference guide for this memorial wall, and his invaluable assistance in editing our lists, as well as for the many years of difficult research he spent compiling these records.
The names on the memorial walls are the results of several sources of information, but probably not complete. As we are made aware of additional names, we will add those names to the walls in a separate section of these walls of honor. We are also aware that there are many unidentified and unknown merchant mariners who were lost in service to their country aboard merchant ships who will never be identified. This memorial honors the memory of these unknown heroes.
