SOLD R.M.S. Lusitania Medal in Box . YMU3028bw

R.M.S. Lusitania Medal in Box. Worn condition.


Additional Notes: The Lusitania was sunk on her 202nd trans-Atlantic crossing, in May of 1915, by a German U-boat 11 miles off the Old Head of Kinsale, Ireland, killing 1,199 passengers and crew.

The sinking occurred about 2 years before the United States declared war on Germany. Although the Lusitania’s sinking was a major factor in building American support for a war, war was eventually declared only after the Imperial German Government resumed the use of unrestricted submarine warfare against American shipping in an attempt to break the Transatlantic supply chain from the US to Britain, as well as after the Zimmermann Telegram.
