Person Details
02 Feb 1912
A3 was built at Vickers, Barrow-in-Furness and was commissioned on 13 July 1904. She was accidentally rammed while surfacing by the submarine tender Hazard in the English Channel off the Isle of Wight on 2 February 1912 and sank with the loss of all on board. The wreck was salvaged and subsequently sunk as a gunnery target in the English Channel near Portland Bill on 12 May 1912, where she remains today. In July 2016 the wreck of A3 was officially designated as a protected site. (Wikipedia)
Nottingham Evening Post In Memoriam 2/2/1916: ‘Good. In fond memory of Arthur Ernest Good, Chief Engine Room Artificer, who died at his post on HM Submarine A3 February 2nd 1912. – One of the very best. wife and daughter.’ Good was not a Great War fatality. His family presumably argued for inclusion on the St Faith's memorial because his life was lost in military service. David Nunn
