IMPORTANT: Please note the author of this article, Peter Mitchell, passed away in 2015. You are welcome to leave comments as other site visitors are sometimes able to answer queries and also enjoy sharing relevant historical information. Unfortunately I cannot help with enquiries re shipwrecks etc. Best, Chris (Peter's son)
