      HMS Clan McNaughton was a 4985 ton passenger cargo vessel, built in 1911 and requistioned November 1914 from the Clan Line Steamers Ltd, Glasgow.  It is thought that Clan McNaughton foundered in a severe gale off the north coast of Ireland. Last heard from on 3rd February 1915, wreckage was later found in the area and Clan McNaughton was presumed sunk with the 281 strong crew. There is some speculation that she had a new crew who were generally unfamiliar with the vessel, and that the armaments added to the deck destabilised her making the McNaughton vulnerable to such severe weather as was found on the day she lost contact. There is also a theory that she was mined (Mansfield, Henry, R) died on this same ship)

    Under the command of Vice-Admiral Commanding, Channel Fleet, Sir Lewis Bayly, the 5th Battle Squadron spent 31 December participating in gunnery exercises off the Isle of Portland, supported by the light cruisers Topaze and Diamond. After the exercises, that night the fleet remained at sea on patrol even though submarine activity had been reported in the area. With rough sea conditions and the wind increasing, submarine attacks would have been difficult to carry out and so were not thought to be a significant threat. Formidable was steaming at 10 kn (12 mph; 19 km/h) at the rear of the squadron off Portland Bill just 20 nautical miles (23 miles; 37 km) from Start Point, when at 02:20 on 1 January 1915 a torpedo from U-24 struck the number one boiler port side.  The loss of life of Formidable was 35 officers (including Captain Loxley) and 512 men.  Formidable was the third British battleship to be sunk and the second to be sunk by enemy action, during the First World War.
