  1. SS Camlough - Help with New Information re. Salvage of the Wreck

    Ship Research
    I've been researching events around the wreck and subsequent salvage of the SS Camlough on the beach at Monreith in Scotland in 1932. A search on this Forum for 'SS Camlough' will find threads with photos - both of the ship itself and of the surviving portion of wreckage which was never...

    Shoreline Anchor

    This anchor is likely to be one of two from a shipwreck called the Charles Eaton which is situated on the Great Detached Reef in Far North Queensland. The Charles Eaton was wrecked on 15th August 1834 but for more than a year, nothing was heard of her passengers and crew. Gradually word started

    HMQS Gayundah - The Final Berth

    HMQS Gayundah began service in 1884. She was launched at Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK on 13 May 1884. The name Gayundah is an aboriginal word meaning lightning – no doubt because of her incredible 10.5 knot top speed. In concert with her sister ship Paluma, (Aboriginal word for thunder) the sh

    Cherry Venture - Birth of a Ghost Ship

    This series in a theme of reviewing the fate of abandoned human manufactured objects in the natural environment. These images represent loss, but there is a strange beauty about them as well. I am working on four shipwrecks - with another two in my sights for future. This image is the Cherr

    Unknown=Northern Pacific

    Shipwreck, obviously from between 1914 and 1918. The US Library of Congress who owns the photo (but allows it's free use), has no idea of the name of the ship. Somebody here may do though. She's certainly not small enough to have wholly evaded the annals of nautical history.
