The article tells the story of the SS Mendi, which sank in 1917 with the loss of 649 lives, most of them black South African labourers en route to the battle front in France. The wreck lies more or less complete on the sea bed off the Isle of Wight; it has no legal protection, and is not designated a war grave. Since 1974 it is believed that numerous artefacts from the wreck have been removed and dispersed. The author aims to raise awareness of the Mendi's story, and that of the 300,000 foreign labourers employed by Britain during the World War I.
