Arthur George Martin an 18 year old carpenter from Devonport Devon enlisted into the RN in 1907 , he served on various ships until killed in action aboard the battleship HMS Goliath off the Gallipoli beaches on the 13th of May 1915

After the landing of troops on the Gallipoli Peninsula, fire support from naval vessels became ever important. Old pre-dreadnought battleships were assigned this task. On 13 May 1915, whilst at anchor in company with Cornwallis in Morto Bay, the old battleship Goliath was attacked by the Turkish destroyer Mouavenet-Millieh, which in fog, evaded the allied destroyer screen and fired three torpedoes in quick succession. The first hit Goliath abreast the fore turret, the second abreast the foremost funnel and a third abreast the after turret. So swiftly did the battleship sink that many of those below were drowned before they could reach the upper deck. Of the 750 on board Goliath about 570, including Captain Shelford and Petty Officer Martin were drowned.
