So he was not the son of David and Sarah Jenkins, 20 Loudoun Square?

Hi, yes George was the son of David and Sarah of Loudoun Square. 

I have dozens of my Jenkins family postcards written between one another all over Cardiff, dating between 1900 ~ 1970's. And especially to their grandfather, and sickly aunt Mary.


So he was not the son of David and Sarah Jenkins, 20 Loudoun Square?

The Elmsgarth (a civilian cargo ship owned by the Clapham SS Co) was indeed at Civita Vecchia in May 1913.

The Dulcie was also a civilian cargo ship. So presumably George was in the merchant navy briefly before the war.

Merchant navy background adds context to the "It's got to be done, they won't be told" postcard from Exeter.

Hello Shaun

Thank you very much for checking on these ships.  Please may I ask if you noted the arrivals, departures and the ports during the SS Elmsgarth May, 1913 trip?

Many thanks again.

The Elmsgarth left Cardiff for Civita Vecchia on 11th May, arrived 21st. After that I lose track of her. There is a report on 14 June that she is in St Louis but that could be an error. There will be a record of the voyage somewhere and others may know where to find it.

Hi, thank you for checking in on the Elmsgarth's whereabouts again. And yes it would be great if anyone else can add to this, also to the SS Dulcie as well
Thank you lotsss.
