T/815 Private Sidney Richard Isaac of the Canadian Army Medical Corps serving on the hospital ship Llandovery Castle. Born in Bideford in the September Quarter of 1888. Died 27 June 1918 aged 31.

Llandovery Castle was a steamship belonging to the Union Castle Line. On the night of 27 June 1918, travelling between Canada and the UK,   although displaying the agreed Red Cross light, she was torpedoed by a German U-boat 114 miles south-west of the Fastnet Rock. There were 258 people on board, including 94 Medical Officers and Nursing Sisters of the Canadian Medical Staff. All got into lifeboats which began rowing away from the sinking ship. However, the German U-boat captain ordered his crew to fire on the lifeboats so as to sink them. The sole survivors were the 24 people who had been picked up by the Captain's lifeboat, the last to leave the ship, and which somehow escaped the terrible events which followed the sinking.
