  • This incident is recorded on my website http://www.candoo.com/ulsternorrie/ulster/ulster8.html and have spent many hours trawling the Internet for pictures of the incident. HMS Ulster was involved with the rescue and fighting the fires and little photographic records appear to exist. If at all possible I should like to put a link on my website to your pages recording this disaster and if an photographs exist it would be appreciated if i could obtain some.
