A Sea Mystery

 

Last Thursday, there died in the Redruth Poor Law Institution, a coloured West Indian, Daniel Galloway (63), who just over forty-one years ago, as one of the crew, saved himself by swimming from the Mohegan Wreck into Coverack Cove, where he was assisted ashore in an exhausted condition by Henry Tripcony, an old fisherman.

(West Briton 30th November 1939)

 

(The Mohegan sank after hitting the rock of the Manacle Reef in 1898, with great loss of life.

It was thought that the navigating officer may have mistaken the white St Anthony Lighthouse for the Lizard Lights or that the ship’s compass was wrong)
