We Own Laurentic, is the story of the famous Gold Ship, Laurentic. A White Star Liner laid down in Belfast, it was carrying five million in gold bullion to Canada to buy arms for the War effort when it was mined at the mouth of Lough Swilly, Ireland in 1917. It sank in forty metres of water with the loss of 354 men. From 1917 to 1921 royal navy divers salvaged over 3,000 gold bars. Twenty bars of gold still lie among the wreckage of the Laurentic that is strewn over a wide area and many divers have sought her treasure. In 2017 there was a one hundred year commemoration held in Donegal, Ireland, where the Laurentic sank. This updated book has more photographs and contains information from many of the descendants of the Laurentic dead who attended.
