Hi All Ex Houlders

Just an update that the Memorial to those that died 41 yrs ago on RG is still as it was supposed to be.
Photo was taken 4 days ago.
Still remembered by alot of people I`m sure, It happened 3 years before I joined houlders but was still a topic that was often discussed.

I only just found this site recently
I sailed on the Hardwicke Grange during 1972 as J/E
The accident of the Royston was a great shock which a have never forgotten
A few weeks after the incident we arrived in Montevideo she was a terrible sight
Along with C/E Bomber Harris and a couple of engineers we went aboard with a local Suveyor. The engine room was really only smoke damaged, we started the donkey engine for compressed air and then one of the main generators the running light came on on the main switch board but we went no further. It was left with the local Suveyor who I believe wanted to to start the bilge pumps to put her upright
I have several photos
On the Hardwicke we had wreaths which were later taken to the Cemetery which we visited Attachment 189213
On leaving Montevideo we laid a wreath at the spot of the collision Attachment 189215
Over the years I have visited All Hallows Church by the Tower of London a few times to see the Memorial Window there to those who diedAttachment 189217
