Sunken Hospital ship
At this moment I research old Dutch newspapers and found an article in the newspaper Leeuwarder Courant from 06-08-1918 about a British Hospital ship with the name Narilda, and torpedoed and sunk on 03-08-1918.
In the newspaper article there was not any information where the Narilda was torpedoed. Other archives give no information about the ship. So I send the article from the newspaper. But maybe you can use that for your website.
Here a brief translation from Dutch:

Thank you for your note, I think the name of this Australian Hospital Transport was Warilda, she was torpedoed in the North Sea at 50 degrees 12 minutes and 03 seconds N and 000 degrees 16 minutes 04 seconds W
It was sunk by German U-Boat UC-49 on AUGUST 3, 1918 AND ABOUT 123 DIED.
