I have managed to obtain some additional photographs which I have now added to the story. The story is now fully updated.

You have certainly put a lot of work into this, congratulations !

This will be of interest to others who are also researching all the people who lost their lives at that sad event.

Not everyone googles their ancestors names but I give it a try sometimes, it`s surprising what you can link to !

Thanks Billy, I am hopeful that over time, if I share this online, that maybe some descendants of those that sadly died at this tragic incident, will get in touch. Google can be wonderful sometimes, I googled my great grandfathers name, John Edwin Barnes, who died at Gallipoli in WW1, only to find that he was actually mentioned in a book! So you never know!

The East London Advertiser ran a small article on this to commemorate the 80th Anniversary
