Front view of HMS Good Hope - History

It is not commonly known that the first casualties in the Royal Canadian Navy were four midshipmen, doing their "big ship time" in the armoured cruiser HMS Good Hope. They perished along with the rest of their shipmates at the Battle of Coronel, 1 November 1914.

(from Crowsnest, November 1964)

  • (3)Midshipman Malcolm Cann RCN (19), of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia
  • (2)Midshipman John V. W. Hatheway RCN (19), of Granville, Nova Scotia
  • (1) Midshipman William Archibald Palmer RCN (20), of Ottawa, Ontario
  • (4)Midshipman Arthur Wiltshire Silver RCN (20), of Halifax, Nova Scotia

Marc Milner has recently pointed out (in Canada's Navy: the First Century, page 43) that Rear-Admiral Craddock specifically requested that Silver and Palmer join Good Hope and that the other two were drawn by lot.

Three can be seen in the following photograph:

HMS Good Hope, Halifax, 15 August 1914

The big smudge on the forcastle is damage to the original photo, not the ship.

This was the occasion on which seven Canadian midshipmen went aboard Good Hope's consort, HMS Suffolk. When the admiral transferred his flag to the bigger ship, he took four of the Canadian midshipmen with him. They were still in Good Hope when she met her end off Coronel on 1 November 1914.

Radium and the Retired Naval Surgeon
by Dr. Stewart Jackson ([email protected]), (c) 2001

On August 31 st 1911, Dr Fernand L de Verteuil, MD(Edin), MRCS(Eng), LRCP(Lond), Surg RN(ret), read a paper entitled "Radium in the Treatment of Disease" to the Annual Meeting of the BC Medical Association in Vancouver. In it, he describes his own use of radium in Vancouver and describes some of the patients treated. He reported, "I shall briefly refer to one. Male, Age 65, Rodent Ulcer of left side of nose of several years duration, had eaten away lower part of nose exposing nasal cavity. The patient was completely cured after five applications of radium varying from 1 to 3 hours".

In describing the effects of radium on rodent ulcer he said, "it acts like a charm, for which condition it may be practically classified as a dead certain cure. The scar left is almost invisible, being far superior to any scar I have yet seen. In rodent ulcer it might be said that radium fulfils all the necessary conditions of an ideal prescription it cures with certainty, safely, rapidly and pleasantly".

Dr de Verteuil went on to describe treatment in 1910 of an extensive "epithelioma" of the face, but regretted that he did not have enough radium to treat more serious conditions. He describes having two apparatuses, one containing 80 mg of radium bromide and the other 20 mg. The radium bromide was mixed with inert barium salt in a proportion of one to four and distributed at the rate of 1mg per sq cm dissolved in a special varnish spread out in a small metal receptacle. The length of application " varies from 10 minutes to 48 hours depending on the use of suitable screens of lead or platinum".

De Verteuil concluded with comments of Sir Frederick Treves from two years previously , "Radium is a new remedy, and one must exercise the greatest caution in speaking of the potentialities of a new remedy. A new remedy is a thing of great expectations and very ready promises, but sooner or later it must be associated with a measure of disappointment".

Dr de Verteuil, a retired Naval Surgeon, returned to sea at the outset of the Great War but was drowned in the sinking of HMS Good Hope at the Battle of Coronel off the coast of Chile on November 1 st 1914.


HMS Good Hope Postcard

On the 1st November 1914 a pair of British armoured cruisers encountered a German squadron off the coast of Chile. The two German cruisers, Scharnhorst and Gneisnau went into battle against the British cruisers, HMS Monmouth and HMS Good Hope, under the command of Rear Admiral Christopher Craddock. The Admiral’s flagship, HMS Good Hope was hit by Scharnhorst’s third salvo and had her forward turret knocked out and her forecastle set alight. Despite this, Craddock closed with the enemy and chased down the more powerful ships. The Scharnhorst continued to batter the smaller cruiser with gunfire and after 35 hits, HMS Good Hope’s magazine exploded, destroying the ship and her crew of 926 men.

HMS Good Hope was a Drake class cruiser that had been launched in 1901 and is the subject of this week’s postcard:

The ship had a displacement of 14,380 tons and measured 553 feet 6 inches from bow to stern. She was powered by two 4-cylinder triple expansion engines and needed 43 belleville boilers to give her a top speed of 23 knots, these exhausting out of the distinctive four funnels arrayed amidships:

Below the funnels can be seen some of the sixteen breach loading 6 inch guns that made up her secondary armament. These were placed in casemates on either side of the hull and half, on the main deck, were only useable in calm weather.

The ship’s main armament was a pair of 9.2 inch Mk X guns, mounted in single turrets at the bow and stern of the ship:

Immediately aft of the for’ard gun was the bridge, open and with two bridge wings as was typical for the period:

The Drake class were older ships by the time of World War One, but Good Hope’s sister ships would take an active part in the war and the Battle of Coronel ensured that HMS Good Hope and her crew would be remembered by history for their brave sacrifice in the opening months of the war.

Great War Lives Lost

Shortly after noon Cradock’s squadron is whole again, HMS Glasgow having rejoined. The admiral signals for his ships to spread out at 25-mile intervals and sweep north to look for the enemy. Graf von Spee hopes to cut off HMS Glasgow before she can rejoin Cradock, realizing she will have to leave Coronel because of the 24-hour rule. Cradock’s ships hear a great deal of wireless traffic between German supply ships and SMS Leipzig as Graf von Spee has been using Leipzig to transmit and receive all wireless messages between his squadron and its supply ships so as not to give away the presence of the other cruisers. This works as Cradock heads north to trap the Leipzig before she can rejoin Graf von Spee. This action leads to the dramatic situation this afternoon when each admiral believes he is taking his full squadron to cut off a single enemy light cruiser. In reality the two formations are steaming towards each other at a combined speed of almost forty knots. The admirals, friends since their days on the China Station during the Boxer rebellion, are about to meet again. By late afternoon Cradock’s squadron is still fanning out and moving in a northerly direction. They are about thirty miles from Arauco Bay, where the port of Coronel is situated. The flagship is the outermost ship, close to forty miles from HMS Glasgow. At 16:30 the light cruiser’s lookouts sight smoke on the eastern horizon. Captain Luce gives orders to turn to starboard and increase speed. A few minutes later HMS Monmouth and HMS Good Hope turn east in support of HMS Glasgow. Very soon the lookouts are able to recognize the hull and upper works of SMS Leipzig. As HMS Glasgow gets closer the lookouts see more patches of smoke on the horizon. These are soon identified as coming from four funneled cruisers, and HMS Glasgow turns back and signals, ‘Enemy armored cruisers in sight’. The Glasgow’s wireless operators can hear the high pitched scream in their earphones coming from German Telefunken sets trying to jam their transmissions. They are not certain whether the flagship has received their signal. All three British ships head at full speed toward HMS Good Hope to warn Cradock that instead of trapping a single light cruiser, he is running into Graf von Spee’s entire squadron.

SMS Leipzig identifies HMS Glasgow at about the same time and follows her. She soon sees the smoke from the rest of Cradock’s squadron. Leipzig reverses her direction and signals the news to Admiral Graf von Spee. The German admiral realizes that he has found the British squadron, not a single light cruiser. He orders his ships to close up and form a line-heading southwest. Cradock orders his ships to change direction to southeast by east and form a line headed by HMS Good Hope, followed by HMS Monmouth, HMS Glasgow and HMS Otranto. They complete these maneuvers by 17:45. The two squadrons are now approximately 17 miles apart and the Germans soon change course to southwest by west. This brings the battle lines into rapidly converging paths. At this point Cradock still has time to break off contact and move south to join forces with HMS Canopus, which is about three hundred miles away. He realizes that if he does, Graf von Spee will not have enough time to catch him before nightfall. He could then return the next morning, strengthened with HMS Canopus, to attack the German squadron, if he can find it. Even if it slipped by him, the Admiralty has assured him that Admiral Stoddart has a strong force waiting for the Germans in the Atlantic. Cradock has to know that he has little or no chance against Graf von Spee’s superior force, but his orders are, ‘Destroy enemy cruisers’. If he cannot do this, he might at least damage them enough that they will have to seek internment in a Chilean port, or else face the next British squadron at a disadvantage. One or two telling hits on the German large ships might weaken Graf von Spee’s squadron so much that it is no longer a serious threat.

Cradock resolves to attack as soon as possible, while he still has the sun behind him. Sunset is due at about 18:30. As the sun sets lower on the horizon, its rays will be directly in the German gunners eyes. This will make it hard for them to see Cradock’s ships in the distance, while the German ships will be clearly outlined for the British gunners. On the other hand the advantage will swing in favor of the Germans when the sun goes below the horizon. The British ships will be silhouetted against the suns afterglow, while their ships will be difficult to see in the waning daylight. With his superior speed Graf von Spee is able to keep the distance between the two lines at 15,000 yards, well outside of gunnery range. At 18:04 Cradock gives the order to turn 45 degrees to port. He desperately wants to close the range before the sun begins to set, but Graf von Spee orders a similar turn and keeps his distance. At 18:18 Cradock signals HMS Canopus, ‘I am going to attack the enemy’, although the German ships are 3,000 yards beyond his range at the time. Captain Grant signals back that he still has two hundred and fifty miles to go before he can reach Cradock’s position. Graf von Spee now allows the gap between the two lines to close steadily. By 19:00, when the sun has just dipped below the horizon, it is down to 12,300 yards. At 19:04 the German admiral gives the order to open fire. At this range Graf von Spee’s twelve 8.2-inch guns face Cradock’s two 9.2-inch guns. SMS Scharnhorst’s first salvo lands 500 yards short of HMS Good Hope and her second 500 yards beyond, according to an observer on HMS Glasgow. With an awful inevitability the third salvo smashed into Good Hope. One shell strikes her forward 9.2 inch turret, which erupts in flames that shoot higher than 100 feet into the air. At one stroke the gun crew is wiped out before they have fired a single shot. The turret is turned into a useless, twisted mass of steel. Cradock’s heavy guns are now reduced to one.

At almost the same time, SMS Gneisenau opens fire on HMS Monmouth. She obtains a similar straddling pattern with her first three salvos. A shell from the third salvo hits the Monmouth’s forward gun turret and sets it ablaze. Within minutes Good Hope and Monmouth are suffering terrible punishment. The German gunners on each ship manage to fire a broadside of 6 shells every 20 seconds. Cradock’s flagship replies with her lone 9.2-inch gun. HMS Monmouth can use half of her 6-inch guns, which are at the limit of their range. The ships are now heading into the teeth of a Force 6 wind. It is approaching gale conditions, and heavy seas are breaking over their bows and sweeping their forward decks. The British main deck guns cannot be used because of the danger of flooding the casemates. Also their range finders have become so encrusted with salt from the sea spray that they are useless. No hits are registered on the two German cruisers. By this time SMS Leipzig has begun to engage Glasgow, which fires back with her 6-inch guns. SMS Dresden opens fire on HMS Otranto. After one salvo, which falls short, the armed merchant cruiser pulls out of line toward the open sea. She is a large vulnerable target and can only help the Germans find an accurate range on the British line. Captain Edwards signals Cradock, suggesting that he keep the Otranto out of range. The reply is not completed. “There is danger proceed at your utmost speed…” Edwards is not sure what the admiral intends, so he keeps on a course parallel to the squadron, just outside the Dresden’s range.

Ten minutes after Graf von Spee’s order to open fire, the battle of Coronel is as good as over. Cradock keeps closing range until it is down to 5,500 yards. This only makes the firing by SMS Scharnhorst and SMS Gneisenau more devastating, as they are now able to use their 5.9-inch guns also. By 19:30 the Good Hope has been hit between 30 and 40 times. She is heavily damaged in the forward part of the ship, especially the bridge and foretop area where Cradock is directing his squadron. A hail of shells have smashed through her decks and started fires in the interior of the ship. In what may have been a last desperate attempt to inflict some damage on her tormentors, the crippled flagship slides out of line toward the enemy, some of its guns still firing. Graf von Spee, fearing that she is going to fire torpedoes, orders his ships to turn away. According one of HMS Glasgow’s officers, ‘At 19:50, there was a terrible explosion between her main mast and her funnel, the flames reaching a height of over two hundred feet’. The forward magazine must have been ignited by one of the many fires blazing on the ship. HMS Good Hope drifts off into the gloom and smoke and neither side sees her again. No one actually sees her sink, but she could not have stayed afloat for very long in her stricken condition, and must have gone down around 20:00. She takes the admiral with her into the icy depths, drowning all the men and boys who were still alive out of a crew of nine hundred. Because the battle is still raging, no one, British or German, can stop to look for possible survivors.

HMS Monmouth is in almost as much distress, having been hit in excess of thirty times. The ship is ablaze and listing to port, although some of her six-inch guns are still firing sporadically. For another twenty minutes SMS Gneisenau pounds her at short range with both 8.2 and 5.9 inch shells, until she yaws out of line to starboard, away from the German onslaught, sinking by the head. Captain Luce of HMS Glasgow cannot tell in the semi-darkness how bad her condition is and signals to Monmouth at 20:15, ‘Are you all right?’ Captain Brandt replies, ‘I want to get stern to sea. I am making water badly forward’. Through a break in the smoke, Luce sees three ships approaching in the moonlight and signals to Brandt again, ‘Can you steer northwest? The enemy are following us astern.’ There is no reply. When the Glasgow draws nearer, it is obvious that the Monmouth is in desperate straits. The captain of the Glasgow has no choice but to save his ship. The Good Hope and Monmouth are both finished as fighting ships, and the Otranto has fled to the west at 19:45 when her captain sees that the flagship is doomed. The Germans are left with the light cruiser as their only target. She has led a charmed life so far, with only four of her crew wounded, but now every time she fires her guns, the flashes light up the darkness and attract fire from all four German ships. Luce knows that just one 8.2-inch salvo from Scharnhorst or Gneisenau would blow his ship apart, and he gives the order to cease-fire. He has already taken five hits from the Leipzig and the Dresden, which has concentrated on the Glasgow after the Otranto pulled out of line. Although three of the shells fail to explode, one has caused a large hole just above the waterline. Luce can do nothing to help the Monmouth, so he gives the order to head west at full speed. He wants to find the Otranto and heads south to warn the Canopus to turn back. Monmouth’s ordeal is not yet over. SMS Nurnberg finally catches up with the German squadron at 21:00 and comes upon the helpless cruiser, which she identifies by searchlight. The Monmouth is listing so badly that her guns can not be trained on the Nurnberg. The Monmouth’s White Ensign is still flying, so the captain of the Nurnberg gives the order to fire at point blank range, as she gives no sign of surrender. The battered ship finally rolls over on her beam-ends and disappears bow first beneath the waves. No one out of her crew of approximately seven hundred survives. Because of the high seas and the wind blowing at thirty knots, it would be dangerous and probably futile to lower boats to look for survivors in the darkness. The British later agree that the Germans could have done nothing to save any of the Monmouth’s crew who may have still been alive.

In the space of two hours the Royal Navy has suffered the loss of two heavy cruisers and nearly sixteen hundred men and boys. This is the first serious British naval defeat for one hundred years since the budding United States navy defeated a British fleet on Lake Champlain in 1814.

Captain Sidney Drury-Lowe takes HMS Chatham, making skillful use of the tide in the Rufiji River in East Africa moves as close to shore as possible to gain range on SMS Konigsberg. He fires several rounds from Chatham’s 6-inch guns but the shells land well short of the Somali and even farther short of Konigsberg which is anchored about a mile beyond Somali. Drury-Lowe orders some of Chatham’s tanks to be flooded to give the ship a five-degree list, to increase the elevation of the guns, but this still is not enough to reach the German ships. As a result of this action Konigsberg moves another two miles upstream.

Two British destroyers HMS Scorpion (Captain Andrew B Cunningham) and HMS Wolverine (Captain Osmond J Prentice who will be killed on 28 April 1915 in the Dardanelles) attack a Turkish yacht, supposedly acting as a minelayer in Smyrna harbor. She is set afire by her own crew and blows up.

A convoy of 36 ships sets out from Albany on the southwest tip of Australia transporting the New Zealand and Australian Expeditionary Forces. This 8-mile long convoy is protected by the heavy cruiser HMS Minotaur (Captain E B Kiddle) and HMAS Melbourne (Captain Mortimer Silver) and HMAS Sydney a matching pair of light cruisers and the Japanese battle cruiser Ibuki. From Freemantle on the southwest coast of Australia two more transports join the convoy, which heads for Colombo at a speed of 9½ knots.

The British lines are pierced at Neuve Chapelle, which the Germans reoccupy. By the light of a blazing fire at a windmill the Germans again attack Wytschaete Ridge. For more than an hour they are held at bay but around 02:00 they rush again pressing home the attack with bayonets. Sheer weight of numbers forces the London Scottish back over the road and the ridge is captured by the German forces. The London Scottish retire and concentrate at Kemmel.

Service

Good Hope, named after the British colony on the Cape of Good Hope, was laid down on 11 September 1899 with the name of Africa [7] by Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering at their Govan shipyard. [1] She was renamed Good Hope on 2 October and launched on 21 February 1901. [7] She arrived in Portsmouth to be completed and armed in late December 1901. [8] In 1906 she became the flagship of the 1st Cruiser Squadron, Atlantic Fleet and was the flagship of the 2nd Cruiser Squadron when she visited South Africa two years later. Good Hope was placed in reserve in 1913. [9]

Upon recommissioning in mid-1914, she was briefly assigned to the 6th Cruiser Squadron in August before being assigned to the 4th Cruiser Squadron to reinforce Cradock's forces. He transferred his flag to her because she was faster than his previous flagship. Cradock's command was transferred to the coast of South America later that month at his own suggestion to better hunt for the German ships preying upon British merchant ships. His ships were generally unsuccessful in this and he moved his squadron further south in late September to search for the East Asia Squadron, under the command of Vice Admiral Graf Maximilian von Spee, in the vicinity of Cape Horn and the Strait of Magellan in accordance to his orders from the Admiralty. [10]

At the end of September, Cradock made his first fruitless search of the Tierra del Fuego area and later detached three of his ships to search up the Chilean coast, reaching Valparaiso on 15 October, while Good Hope returned to Port Stanley, in the Falkland Islands, to recoal and to reestablish communications with the Admiralty. He received word on 7 October that Spee's ships were definitely bound for the Cape Horn region and waited for the elderly predreadnought battleship Canopus to reinforce his squadron. She was in poor mechanical condition when she arrived at Port Stanley and required time to make repairs. Good Hope sailed on 22 October without her, going around Cape Horn, while Canopus and three colliers departed the following day, taking the shorter route through the Strait of Magellan. [11]

Battle of Coronel

Good Hope rendezvoused with the rest of the squadron at Vallenar Roads in the remote Chonos Archipelago of Chile on 27 October to recoal. They departed two days later, just as Canopus arrived, Cradock ordering the battleship to follow as soon as possible. He sent the light cruiser Glasgow to scout ahead and to enter Coronel, Chile to pick up any messages from the Admiralty and acquire intelligence regarding German activities. The cruiser began to pick up German radio signals from the light cruiser SMS Leipzig on the afternoon of 29 October, and delayed entering Coronel for two days with Cradock's permission to avoid being trapped by the fast German ships. A German supply ship was already there and radioed Spee that Glasgow had entered the harbour around twilight. The cruiser departed on the morning of 1 November, but Spee had already made plans to catch her when informed of her presence the previous evening. [12]

Glasgow departed Coronel at 09:15 after having picked up the squadron's mail and rendezvoused with the rest of the squadron four hours later. Cradock ordered his ships to form line abreast with an interval of 15 nautical miles (28 km 17 mi) between ships to maximise visibility at 13:50, and steered north at a speed of 10 knots (19 km/h 12 mph). At 16:17 Leipzig spotted Glasgow, the easternmost British ship, to its west and she spotted Leipzig ' s funnel smoke three minutes later. At 17:10 Cradock ordered his ships to head for Glasgow, the closest ship to the Germans. Once gathered together, he formed them into line astern, with Good Hope in the lead, steering southeasterly at 16 knots (30 km/h 18 mph) at 18:18. As the sixteen 21-centimetre (8.3 in) guns aboard the armoured cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau were only matched by the two 9.2-inch guns on his flagship, he needed to close the range to bring his more numerous 6-inch guns to bear. The Force 7 winds and high seas, however, prevented the use of half of those guns as they were too close to the water. He also wanted to use the setting sun to his advantage so that its light would blind the German gunners. Spee was well aware of the British advantages and refused to allow Cradock to close the range. His ships were faster than the British, slowed by the 16-knot maximum speed of the armed merchant cruiser Otranto, and he opened up the range to 18,000 yards (16,000 m) until conditions changed to suit him. The sun set at 18:50, which silhouetted the British ships against the light sky while the German ships became indistinguishable from the shoreline behind them. [13]

Spee immediately turned to close and signalled his ships to open fire at 19:04 when the range closed to 12,300 yards (11,200 m). Spee's flagship, Scharnhorst, engaged Good Hope while Gneisenau fired at Monmouth. Cradock's flagship was hit on the Scharnhorst ' s third salvo, when shells knocked out her forward 9.2-inch turret and set her forecastle on fire. Cradock, knowing his only chance was to close the range, continued to do so despite the battering that Spee's ships inflicted. By 19:23 the range was almost half of that when the battle began and the British ships bore onwards. Spee tried to open the range, fearing a torpedo attack, but the British were only 5,500 yards (5,000 m) away at 19:35. Seven minutes later, Good Hope charged directly at the German ships, although they dodged out of her way. Spee ordered his armoured cruisers to concentrate their fire on the British flagship and she soon drifted to a halt with her topsides all aflame. At 19:50 her forward magazine exploded, severing the bow from the rest of the ship, and she later sank in the darkness. Spee estimated that his flagship had made 35 hits on Good Hope, suffering only two hits in return that did no significant damage and failed even to wound one crewman. [14] Good Hope was sunk with all hands, a total of 919 officers and enlisted men. [7] Four of the midshipmen aboard the ship were the first casualties of the newly formed Royal Canadian Navy. [15]


1/700 Combrig Models HMS Good Hope Armored Cruiser, 1902

HMS Good Hope was a 14,100-ton Drake-class armoured cruiser of the British RoyalNavy she was originally planned to be named Africa, but was renamed before she was launched. Laid down on 11 September 1899 and launched on 21 February 1901, with her heaviest gun being of 9.2 inch (234mm) calibre, she became the flagship of the 1st Cruiser Squadron, Atlantic Fleet, in 1906, and in 1908 became the flagship of the 2nd Cruiser Squadron.

She went into the Reserve Fleet in 1913, but following the mobilisation just before the outbreak of the First World War, she joined the 6th Cruiser Squadron. The 6th Cruiser Squadron was initially allocated to the Grand Fleet at Scapa Flow to replace the 4th Cruiser Squadron (composed of Monmouth class cruisers) which had previously been sent to Rear-Admiral Sir Christopher Craddock'sNorth America and West Indies command to help protect British interestsduring the Mexican Revolution.

However, the Admiralty almost immediately (mistakenly) concluded that it was likely that German liners in New York and other ports on the United States Atlantic seaboard could convert themselves to armed merchant cruisers by installing guns which the Admiralty believed they carried in theirholds. They therefore diverted Good Hope to further reinforce Craddock's force, and she left Portsmouth on 2 August 1914 under the command of Captain Philip Francklin. Craddock transferred his flag to her on her arrival at Halifax, Nova Scotia because, although 90% of her crew were reservists who had been given little opportunity to train together in the ship, she was faster than his current flagship HMS Suffolk.

For the next few weeks she was employed protecting British merchant shipping as far south as Pernambuco and later the Falkland Islands. She then embarked on the search for the German East Asiatic Squadron, leaving Stanley on 22 October for the west coast of South America via Cape Horn.

She was sunk along with HMS Monmouth by the German armoured cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau under Admiral Graf Maximilian von Spee with the loss of her entire complement of 900 hands in the Battle of Coronel, on 1 November 1914, off the Chileancoast.


HMS 'Barrymore' in Rough Seas around the Cape of Good Hope

In June 1942, HMS Barrymore sailed out of the South African city of Cape Town towing a damaged corvette, HMS Bellwort. Our destination: Durban, on South Africa's east coast. I was a signalman on board the Barrymore, but little did I know what lay ahead.

We, the crew, soon began to realise that the Cape of Good Hope in the southern hemisphere in wintertime could be rather an unpleasant place. A really tremendous storm was brewing up. The seas were becoming mountainous walls of water, and during the night the Bellwort slid down one side of one of the wave mountains and we slid down the opposite side, away from the Bellwort, which was helpless, of course, without rudder and no engines running. The six-inch steel hawser snapped like a violin string, the end attached to us striking our stern a frightening blow. We were left with the almost impossible task of trying to get the hawser reconnected to the corvette while looking to our own survival in what was now a raging hurricane. The wind in the ship’s rigging was making a fearful wailing noise, which was quite spirit-numbing.

During the night the skipper told us that the Barrymore was designed to withstand a roll of up to 45 degrees each way, and we had been rolling 50 degrees. The skipper’s detailed information was hardly likely to inspire confidence!

The situation aboard the Bellwort was grave in the extreme, with her crew all wearing inflated lifebelts on deck and ready to jump. The Barrymore turned on her searchlight to illuminate the scene while the end of the hawser attached to us was winched aboard.

It was at this point in the rescue attempt that I witnessed the most astonishing event I have ever seen. The seas were estimated to be 60 feet high. Torrential rain was also a major hazard, and we wondered if we would survive. The ship’s logbook recorded the conditions of the sea as 'precipitous', which was the worst of all on our graduated scale. In the midst of all this, a seaman was washed overboard. Within moments, by some miracle, the next giant wave brought him back on board, apparently none the worse for his ordeal!

By dawn the seamen had done a wonderful job in winching aboard and coiling our end of the hawser, and spent the whole of the day trying to get a line aboard the corvette to act as a lead tow for bigger ropes, followed finally by the six-inch hawser. At sunset we had a line across which we sent by rocket, and this led through a series of thicker ropes to the hawser being fed across the two ships and secured.

We were on our way to Port Elizabeth, our position 80 miles from Port Elizabeth, 35 degrees south, 25 degrees east, and we were wondering if we would ever make it there.

On Sunday, 5 July, we arrived at Port Elizabeth. The Mauritania II was in the harbour as I remember. Awaiting our arrival at Port Elizabeth was the Commander-in-chief South Atlantic, who sent up a signal saying, 'Well done Barrymore. Congratulations.' We felt not a little pride on this occasion. Enough to say that the crew of the Bellwort was extremely grateful and insisted on buying the drinks whenever they met us ashore. To be involved in such an experience and especially to witness a miracle makes one feel a little humble and realise that sometimes we are inclined to overdo our complaining.

Our mission was completed when we finally towed the Bellwort into Durban dockyard. This had been accomplished even though we were hearing reports that Japanese submarines were active in the area. We, with a ship in tow, would have been sitting ducks. This was confirmed when we received a signal on our wireless-telegraphy, 'ssss attack on SS Phemouis. Torpedo missed.' Thirty minutes later, 'ssss attack on SS Phemouis. Torpedoed and sinking.'

We also had messages that an armed enemy surface raider was operating and two more merchant ships had been sunk, so all in all we were more than grateful that we had arrived without any loss of life. It seems that it was just our good luck to survive.

The Movietone News Bulletin at a cinema we visited was largely about the worst hurricane around the Cape of Good Hope for at least 14 years. The film showed damage that had been done to Cape Town and neighbouring townships around the Cape, quite extensive damage, too. We felt a little taller having achieved what we had done.
