Punch cartoon on the sinking of the Lusitania, 1915. A German submarine torpedoed the Lusitania off the Irish coast on 7 May 1915. Although unarmed, she was carrying munitions. 1, 198 people lost their lives, of whom 128 were US citizens. This satirical illustration, titled 'Wilful Murder', shows the depth of anti-German feeling two weeks after the tragedy. The German Kaiser proposes a toast To the Day..., ...of reckoning, finishes Death, pointing to the gallows. From Punch, 19 May 1915.
