  • Notes 
    • Bella sailed to Indianapolis via New York from Glasgow on the SS Cameronia on 6 September 1913.

      The myth is that she was torpedoed on the way home and was never able to work again but the reason is not clear. There is supposed to have been a court case later to get her an annuity from her father or his estate. She did get something but again it is not clear how much

      Prior to sailing she was still living with her parents at 2 West Terrace, Ferryden and was only 22 years old.

      She was listed on the passenger list as a nurse and the next step is find out if she served on any of the ships that were requisitioned during WW 1 for carrying troops. The Cameronia for instance was requisitioned OFFICIALLY in 1917 for troops and sailed between France and Egypt. There is, however, a big question mark over the Cameronia because in 1915 The Lucitania was delayed by 2+ hours to take on some of the Cameronian passengers, some of whom died when the Lucitania was torpedoed and sunk just off the coast of Ireland. There seems to be no answer from officialdom as to why this happened. Bella was not listed on either the Cameronia or the Lucitania at that time.
