CONVEYING BODIES.

The Sydney Morning Herald, 13 January, 1911.

The third officer of the Tottenham said
that the captain enjoined silence, remarking 
that his owners would have a poor opinion 
of him if he bothered to pick up and convey 
bodies to the nearest port when other vessels 
were specially searching for bodies.


This was in the locale of the Great Fish River, roughly two weeks after the Waratah went missing. If bodies had been recovered and identified, how this would have altered the complexion of the Waratah mystery.
