The sinking of the Kenbane Head

Sam McAughtry

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

A tribute to the author's brother who died when his ship, the Kenbane Head, was sunk by a German battleship in November 1940.

This powerful and poignant memoir traces the threads of the Mart's life, weaving together an intimate account of life in the McAughtry family home in Tiger's Bay with a controversial retelling of the events that led up to the famous naval encounter in which Mart would meet his death.

Moving, vivid and told with McAughtry's trademark Belfast humour, The Sinking of the Kenbane Head demonstrates Sam McAughtry's great talent as a writer and is a fitting tribute not just to Mart, but to all the unsung merchant seamen who played such a vital role in World War 2.
