Pin, RMS Missanabie
Pin, RMS Missanabie

This souvenir pin is from the RMS Missanabie, a Canadian Pacific ocean liner sunk by a German U-Boat (submarine) on 9 September 1918.

The pin depicts a ship's wheel and Canadian Pacific's own red and white checkered flag. Like many other ocean liners, the Missanabie spent the First World War transporting troops across the Atlantic. Torpedoed by U-87 off the Irish coast, Missanabie sank quickly, with the loss of 45 lives. This pin belonged to Nimrod Folbigg, a Canadian soldier who was awarded the Military Medal and who may have travelled overseas in the Missanabie.
