Hi Hugh
If you want I can do the translation. You can perhaps post them here.

Hi Ian, thank you that is kind of you - the documents should be attached below. The first one is straightforward being a crew list signed by the Master who survived the sinking. The ticks next to the names are the survivors. The other two pages are a report along with those who died. Thank you once again for your help.

Before jamcat takes a look
I had a look for words I knew
And can read the sentence about a

South Westerly wind blowing  clear but dark

My sister always said that if you read Scandinavian languages aloud with a Birmingham accent you could understand ! 😃 Only works for some words tho

Farty is journey
The outgoing ut
& From Glasgow to Heules
 ingoing inn

Are probably self explanatory

Second page looks complicated.


Its a great document to have
