The British cargo ship AFGHANISTAN was beached at Zoutelande (near Flushing) on 8th May 1912. She was refloated on 9th May and could continue her voyage from Antwerp to Newcastle.

I think she is the 1899 Short Brothers built ship for Hindustan Steamship (GRT 3427). However, Strick owned a ship of the same name built in 1905 by Scotts Greenock (GRT 4443).

I think you are right re 1899 "Afghanistan". Funnel band/white hull line a match for Hindustan S.S.Co. Photo of their "Kurdistan" (1895) here: http://www.saradistribution.com/foto...istan_ship.jpg
