Most of the above is consistent, or so it seems to the webmaster - i.e. The vessel was at Sharpness Docks, Bristol, in Feb. In 1911, the vessel was sold to Cogneti Schiaffino, of Genoa, Italy, & renamed Solideo. 3, 1917 it was torpedoed without warning & sunk in North Atlantic, 150 miles west of Fastnet, (SW tip of Ireland) with the loss of 52 lives, including the Master.

Now Carl Holmberg, of Hawaii, is researching Bikar Atoll, an uninhabited atoll in the Ratak Chain of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean - for a Wikipedia article. No sign of the crew or passengers has since been found.' I have since located an earlier article, ex the New York Times of Oct. Which article states that some of the wreckage had the vessel's name upon it & that one body was also found. in substance, Captain Mc Dougall developed the concept of the whaleback design in the U.

Eddystone of London took the crew aboard, but later the crew took to the boats again to land at Bne (Annaba, Algiers). The cause of the water entering the ship is not known, however the Court found no justification for the engines being stopped, the ship not being kept afloat & beached. I read that 'Horsley's' were both ship owners & managers & operated a timber importing business in West Hartlepool. The vessel was a WW1 war prize & became owned by the Shipping Controller, of London, (J. It was intended that she be renamed 'Maud Larssen' but that did not happen. 176 (or maybe 177) 'turret ships' (one authoritative site says 184) were built by Doxford in the years through to 1911.

After WW1, orders for new ships dried up, & Doxfords closed down from September 1924 to April 1927. I read that in 1946, the company took over the Palmer's Hill, Sunderland, engine works of John Dickinson & Sons Ltd. It moved its facilities downstream on the River Wear to Pallion in 1857. She did, however, raise the general alarm as to Elm Branch's predicament. It was a 'Puget Sound Tugboat Company' tug however, Tyee I believe, one of two tugs (Tacoma was the other) that attended the scene, that brought Elm Branch safely to Seattle, being later awarded ,500 for her efforts by a Seattle court. 1919 the vessel was sold to to Polish-American Navigation Corp.', of New York, & renamed Wisla.
