    #12... John in Oz. You should have bought your watch off George Robey in Port Said they contained a cockroach inside who was guaranteed for two days. Beleive Las Palmas used the Death Watch Beetle which had a much shorter life span... Cheers JWS

    Whilst on a voyage London for Mauritius and Natal. On Thursday evening 17/2/1916 COMRIE CASTLE ran aground on Leven Reef whilst attempting to enter Mombasa. Anchors were set no leaks reported. Passengers were taken off on Friday morning. After unloading 700 tons of cargo into lighters the vessel was re floated on Monday 21/2/1916 and made passage to Killindini Harbour. She apparently suffered no damage. The company's vessel GALEKA stood by.
