Samuel George Hill's Story

Torpedo hit HMS Goliath on 13th May 1915. The day he died at the aged 36. A Private on board ship and remembered on Plymouth Naval Memorial. He was the only son of Samuel & Charlotte Ann Baxter. His cousin is my Grandfather who lived to the age of 85, what a difference in the two lives. We WILL remember them.
