There has been widespread remembrance for those who lost their lives on the SS Mendi steamship which sunk 100 years ago.
SA Naval Museum curator of Lieutenant-Commander Leon Steyn says the tragic incident has been remembered across the nation.
He explains that there are memorials in Atteridgeville in Tshwane, Soweto in Joburg, Port Elizabeth and at UCT in Cape Town.
The Naval has named a ship after the Reverend on board the SS Mendi, Isaac Dyobha, who is believed to have led the men to gather on the sinking deck.
The navy also named other frigate's after the incident and Steyn adds that other memorials have been built in the United Kingdom.
This has become a national story and national legacy... There's a lot of remembrance, not just in the UK, in South Africa as well.— Lieutenant Commander Leon Steyn, Curator of SA Naval Museum
