401 Address: 41 Tisbury Road, Hove, Sussex, England Mabel Mary COTTINGHAM
402 The sinking of the Arctic in 1854
The loss of the Arctic, September 27, 1854, an ocean-going wooden paddlewheeler of the United States Mail Steamship Company (The Collins Line), occurred when Captain Luce misjudged the damage done to her after she collided with the small French steamer, Vesta, on September 27, 1854, about fifty miles off Cape Race, Newfoundland. The collision was assured by dense, rolling fog, and Luce, believing that the smaller Vesta was sinking, humanely sent one of his lifeboats to pick up survivors.
His second mistake that day was thinking his ship was slightly damaged, when the Vesta, in fact, had actually ripped open a good chunk of the Arctic's bow. Told that his ship was taking on heavy water, Luce ordered full speed toward land. Giant swells flooded the boiler rooms by the time the Arctic's lookout spotted land twenty miles distant. But it was too late; the ship was sinking rapidly.
Luce ordered his 367 passengers and crew members on deck, began to organise the lowering of boats, and instructed everyone that women and children would go first. The "black gang" (stokers) rebelled and with shouts and curses they made for the lifeboats, knocking passengers to the deck. One ship's officer drew his gun but before he could fire a stoker killed him with a vicious smash on his head with a shovel. As a result of the panic only one boat and a raft, hastily constructed of spars and wooden rails, took off forty-five passengers.
Among the 322 people lost were Mary Collins and her two children, Henry and Mary the family of shipping line owner Edward Knight Collins, who hounded Captain Luce, a survivor, from the seas. Collins screamed that he "had practically murdered" his family.

409 The "SS Aparima" was "torpedoed by the German submarine UB-40 while en voyage from London to Barry. The explosion took place at 00.50 a.m. without warning, the vessel sinking in five minutes, giving the crew no time to launch the boats.
"A total of 26 European and 30 native crew members were lost, the one passenger, who survived, being a pilot. Twenty-six crew were picked up by the Norwegian Selun SS and landed at St. Helen's, sixteen were picked up by a patrol vessel, the rest landing at Saint Alban's Head, presumably in a boat." -
