Old Head of Kinsale Lighthouse and the Lusitania-- Part 3: U-boat Skipper Gets Captured Later in the War Near the Same Site

Interestingly enough, after the U-boat which sank the Lusitania returned to Germany, the man who had captained it, Raimund Weisbach, returned to the sea and, in 1917 off the southwest coast of Ireland near Fastnet Lighthouse, was captured by the British after one of their submarines had torpedoed his new submarine, the U-81.
