On July 3rd, 1919, the Norwegian barque SV EDDERSIDE was on a voyage from Durban to Buenos Aires with a cargo of coal, when she was lost after a collision in fog with British steamer THEMISTOCLES, 90 miles from Cape Agulhas near Capetown. 7 persons were lost, 13 were picked up by the THEMOSTICLES.
Could anybody help me with where I may find the crew list please?
Thank you for your prompt and helpful reply. I can now eliminate one possibility. The reason for the enquiry is that I suspect a relative was part of the crew. I have a photograph from my grandfather of the crew of the Edderside and there must have been a good reason for him to have kept it. The photograph is a postcard made in Australia, probably by a local photographer while in port on one of its regular visits there.
After the collision Themosticles was repaired and continued its journey to Australia carrying troops returning from the war in Europe. At the end of the passenger list is a section "Those who arrived without previous notification were...J.Miller" My grandfather's brother-in-law was James Miller so I'm wondering if this was he who was added to the list after boarding at Capetown.
