Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

[Actions taken to salvage the ONITSHA; two page scans]


Salvage Operations, SS ONITSHA

Wednesday, May 3rd, 1916

Took both pinnaces and steam cutters, and 5” wire to ONITSHA at 11.00am. Placed her port bower anchor under pinnace and hung shackle (one) of cable, but owing to the sea and the fact that we were not able to unshackle at the first shackle as it was rusted in, we had to get the anchor into hawser pipe again, hang it and shackle the wire to anchor. We then laid the anchor out right ahead about 140 fathoms away. Returned to ship at 7.45pm.

Left again at 8.30pm with small party in 1st steam cutter to have a pull on the anchor at high water at 9.15pm., but found the sea too bad for boat and had to return to ship.

While hooking on the boats in the dark 2 men were knocked overboard and were very lucky in being picked up.


Thursday May 4th

Left ship at 5am, taking 6” wire, and got SS SALAGA towing with our 6” wire and a 4” belonging to ONITSHA by 9.30 a.m. The 4” parted after about half an hour, we then hauled in 6” and laid it with 75 fathoms of ONITSHA’s port cable to SALAGA.

By that time SALAGA was bumping the bottom and could not stay where she was, so she buoyed the end of 6” and went into deeper water for the night, but she got her screw foul with the 8” manila, which was on the 6”, so could not go far.


Friday May 5th

Left ship at 5.30am with diving party, also party for ONITSHA, and got the SALAGA joined up with ONITSHA with our 6” and 75 fathoms of ONITSHA’s cable. The divers found 6 turns of 8” manila on SALAGA’s screw, and cleared it in about an hour.

SALAGA towed, and we hove in on the anchor we had laid out from 10 until 11.30, got in a few feet on the wire to anchor.

Got a 6” wire on board ONITSHA which had been sent in AKABO.

Ordinary Seaman John McSweeney, O.N. SS6011, fell overboard from ONITSHA knocking his head on the way, and sank almost immediately.

SALAGA slipped the tow again before dark.


Saturday May 6th

Got the SALAGA towing again in the morning. She towed for two hours. We got in almost 6 feet on the anchor, using a deck tackle (our cat purchase) brought to a winch, for backing up the windlass.

In the afternoon, we unshackled ONITSHA’s starboard anchor, and prepared for towing with 6” wire and starboard cable. The ADANSI arrived.


Sunday May 7th

Left ship at 6.30 and got ADANSI towing on starboard bow, and SALAGA on port bow by 9am, with the anchor we laid out right ahead on windlass, backed up by deck tackle. The ONITSHA shifted about 20 feet by 11.30, the SALAGA then broke down with sand in her condensers, and both ships slipped the tow and buoyed the wires.

[Right and left sides of the next page in the report.]


Monday May 8th

The ADANSI did not succeed in getting the hawser in this morning, as she anchored too near the wire on anchor, and fouled it. The SALAGA got her hawser in and started towing, but went off too fast, and parted our 6” wire on her poop.

The ONITSHA came round from N10W, to N40W, and we moved her about 30 yards by heaving on the anchor.

In the afternoon, we hauled in starboard cable and 6” wire, and dipped it clear of wire to anchor, as owing to the angle through which ship had swung, the ADANSI would have been no use in the position she was in before. The port cable and 6” were left out where they had parted from SALAGA to help to keep ONITSHA steady.


Tuesday May 9th

Left ship at 6.30 a.m. and got the ADANSI in tow by 9 o’clock. Hove in port cable and 6” wire, and prepared it for paying out to SALAGA. The SALAGA anchored too far off, and did not get the wire in until 12.30, by which time ship was beginning to come off, and she was right off by 12.45.

We then weighed the anchor on our 5” wire, slipped from SALAGA, hauled in on the port cable and 6”, and were towed out into deep water by the ADANSI, then slipped and hauled in her tow and anchored, using the wire, then shackled her cable to anchor and weighed and anchored again close to HIGHFLYER, and got our 6” and 5” wires, deck tackles, shackles etc. back on board.


Hands were required daily in ADANSI and SALAGA working the hawsers, and also in ONITSHA for paying out while getting in tow.

Towing ships secured hawsers with one turn round poop bollards, then lashed to mainmast with several parts of 4”.

Cables were secured in ONITSHA, starboard with two parts of 4½” to foremast and port with 4” round the 4 F’cle bollards, so as to take the strain equally on all four bollards with 4 parts of the 4”.

8:48 am: Fire broke out on MONT BLANC.

8:55 am: Commander Triggs and Lieutenant Ruffles proceeded in whaler to investigate.

9:08 am: Mont Blanc exploded (cargo, ammunition previously unknown) causing large wave and setting Richmond on fire. Damage was done to HIGHFLYER and to most of its boats. The skiff was sent to find the whaler’s crew and picked up Murphy AB who was unconscious and later died. Becker AB was found on the shore, having swum there. No trace of the remainder of the whaler’s crew was found. HIGHFLYER received wounded from other ships, made temporary repairs and cleared debris. The ship had to be unmoored at one point because of the danger from its proximity to the PICTON and the fires. The watch of stokers which had been landed administered first aid on shore.
