Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wreck of the Shenandoah
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Wreck of the Shenandoah
A really great thread! I'm researching the robbery of the Shenandoah dead - especially Lansdowne and others in the control car. His Anapolis ring was stolen from his still-warm body (clothed in the uniform of his Country)along with his wallet, watch, cuff links and some other jewelry. Others of the crew suffered the same, robbed by their fellow citizens in the early hours on the crash scene.
Does anyone have any more information about these awful desecrations of dead American servicemen by American civilians?
Thanks for any assistance.
