Thanks for the site, very useful.

If someone knows the exact name of the captain in 1914, I am interested. From russian texts, it seems to be something like O. Pignay but I am not sure of the translation.

Regards

Claude

I can transliterate Russian - if you load a readable image I'll see what I can do.

Lloyd's Register (both the 1914-15 and 1915-16 editions) gives the master's name as J.R. Rae.

Hello seaJane,

thanks for the proposition. I accept with gratitude. In the text, this is the part concerning the cargo Friederike :

 

У пристани Русского Общества Пароходства и Торговли сгорел посаженный своим капитаном на грунт пароход «Чатырдаг», груз которого состоял из муки в трюмах и бочек с маслом и дегтем на палубе. Команда ошвартованного к 1-й пристани Владикавказской железной дороги английского парохода «Фредерик», принявшая начало бомбардировки за салют, высыпала на палубу. Только когда в надстройку начали попадать осколки, капитан судна О. Пигвнай дал приказ экипажу сойти на берег. «Фредерик» пострадал от пожара и получил дифферент на нос, начался пожар и в носовой части русского транспортного судна «Петр Регир», стоявшего у 2-й пристани. Больше досталось находившемуся у 5-й пристани пароходу РОПиТ «Николай» (1085 брт), который «выгорел… и лег боком на грунт».

Thanks also to Ralph. There is no ressemblance between the two names ; it is more than possible that my translation is wrong.

 

Regards

 

Claude

It's a long article.

Can you get to a library that has access to FMPast?

Here's a report that appeared in the papers;

I fear that is hardly possible in France. In any case, many thanks for the report.
