#OTD in 1914, Wenman Wykeham-Musgrave survived being torpedoed on three ships within one hour. He was aboard HMS Aboukir when it was torpedoed by U-9. He then swam to HMS Hogue which was immediately sunk by the sub. When he swam to HMS Cressy, that ship also fell victim to U-9. https://t.co/HzlF5KdDc9
