Hi Pete and anyone else with info,
I found your post when researching SS Bestwood. My grandfather Thomas Baty was her captain on this fateful journey and drowned along with others. I would love to know about the collision and any other info concerning the numbers who lost their lives. Was the Leander under UK flag too?

Another query about collision between Leander and Bestwood, would there have been an enquiry as to the cause? Thanks Sue
