Ondo

ONDO and OTI differed from the other four 'O' class vessels in that they were built without passenger accommodation, there were other slight differences but the hull, engines etc. were identical to the rest of the class.

The sad story of the loss of the ONDO (picture attached) can be found at
http://ondo.sea-rescue.de/

The master of ONDO, Capt. W. Farquhar was dismissed by Elder Dempster following the loss of his ship, but was feted by the Elbe pilot service for his attempts to save the three men in the water. These attempts, of course, were the cause of the vessel stranding.
