S.S. "Bore". 1899 Cover to Lindkoping, without any 1899 postmark of origin (possibly having been hand carried on the "Bore"), unusually handstamped boxed "FRAN FINLAND" with datestamps of Stockholm (3 May 1901) and Lindkoping (May 4), the reverse sealed with the large perforated type 5 explanatory label.

A fire occurred amongst the mails on the "Newton" whilst at Sunderland on February 14th, but was extinguished by the crew and not reported until the ship arrived at Uddevalla.

S.S "American". 1880 (Apr 8) Cover from G.B to Rouxville, Orange Free State, franked 1878 6d grey plate 16 tied by Sutton D23 duplex, with "CAPE TOWN" (Sep. 7) arrival c.d.s, backstamped at Rouxville (Sep. 18), the address panel torn with a central hole and a few edge faults, the inside of the cover with the apparently contemporary manuscript message "Saved! When american sunk in Atlantic Ocean sacks of mail put in 8 Boats, this in the Dinghy, the last Boat saved, no lives lost. One by accident afterwards". Carried on the Union steamer "American" which sailed from Southampton and Plymouth for Table Bay but sank on April 23rd 250 miles South West of Cape Palmas after her shaft broke and the aft compartment filled with water. The 134 crew and passengers embarked in eight boats with some of the mail. Three boats were rescued on April 25th and a further three a little later, all being taken to Madeira. The gig was eventually rescued and taken to Quitta, eight mailbags being recovered by then. The ship's dinghy, the smallest of the eight boats, carrying seven crew "reduced to the last extremity" and five mailbags, were finally rescued by the Portuguese brig "Taranjo" on July 21st, after 85 days at sea, and taken to Loanda. The Cape Town c.d.s on this cover proves it was from one of these mailbags carried in the dinghy for 85 days. A remarkable cover, one of just two recorded covers from the "American". Photo Inside Front Cover. £400-500

The Union-Castle steamer "Mexican" left Cape Town for Southampton on April 4th but ran into dense fog and collided with the transport vessel S.S "Winkfield" the following morning when 80 miles from Cape Town. The "Mexican" slowly sank, passengers and crew all being taken on the "Winkfield" and part of the letter mails being recovered and put on the "Tantallon Castle", which arrived in England on April 27th.

Apparently then hand carried to England and posted unpaid as an express letter at Sunderland with oval framed "EXPRESS" handstamp and two "SUNDERLAND" (June 5) datestamps. A remarkable Express cover, strangely posted in England five weeks after the arrival of the mails from the "Mexican", possibly containing an item recovered later and taken to the Cape. Photo on Page 21. £300-400
S.S "Gertrud Woermann". 1903 (Aug 12) Cape 1d postal stationery postcard to Germany cancelled "CAPE TOWN" c.d.s (Aug 28) with boxed "PAQUEBOT", arrival c.d.s of Stettin (Sep. 20). Written at Swakopmund and posted on the "Gertrud Woermann" bound for Walfish Bay and Cape Town, the ship running aground in dense fog at Port Nolloth on August 22nd, all passengers and mails being transferred to the "Nautilus" and carried to Cape Town where this card was handed in as 'paquebot' mail. Also a German telegram form with Berlin c.d.s (Aug 25) sent from Windhoek reporting the stranding of the ship, and a letter of August 25th from the Woermann Line offices in Hamburg to the Postmaster General in Berlin concerning the incident and the mails on board.

The still smouldering ship was later towed to Antwerp, arriving late in August, much of the mail found to be severely damaged or totally destroyed. Some mail was salvaged intact, and was sent to London, where an explanatory cachet was applied. Fine and scarce. Photo on Page 21. £200-250

Backstamped at Brazzaville (12/13 Oct.) and Marseille (Nov. 9). An interesting item from an unknown incident, probably occurring in Oubangui-Chari-Tchad in early October.
