HMS Hampshire was on it's way Russia when it struck a mine off the Orkaney Islands. On board was Lord Kitchener. Out of 600 men only 12 survived.
Mansfield Chronicle Advertiser: 08/06/1916: Warsop Vale Sailor on the Hampshire. Charley Cadman, son of Mr & Mrs Cadman of 102 Warsop Vale, was engaged as a stoker on "HMS Hampshire" the ill-fated cruiser which sank off the Orkney Islands on Monday last. For present Mr & Mrs Cadmen have had no communication from the Admiralty and it is feared that the unfortunate youth has perished. He joined the Royal Navy 3 years ago. He was smart, intelligent young man, and highly respected by all who knew him. He at one time served on the "Black Prince" one of the ships sunk in the recent naval battle.
