S.S. Pepin. 1906

Hi,
I am a marine artist and am currently researching the sinking of the S.S. PEPIN on 2nd January 1906 in the Bristol Channel. Harry Frost rescued 16 men and I am led to beleive that he was a pilot and used a pilot cutter for the rescue. He was presented with a barometer by theShipwrecked Fishermen & Mariners, Royal Benevolent Society. any information on this event or details of the S.S. PEPIN would be gratefully received.
Tom R.

Hi Tom.
Today I was looking at that barometer and plaque that was presented to Harry Frost. His grandson is the current custodian of it and it is in Australia. He would love to talk to you if you like.
