Survivors of the wreck of HMS Birkenhead 50 years later
A large troopship, HMS Birkenhead, with about 638 men women and children on board, was sailing off the coast of Africa on a clear night on 26th February 1852 carrying reinforcements for the troops engaged in the Kaffir War. As Captain Salmond was anxious to shorten the voyage and the sea was calm he kept at near as possible to the shore. Off Cape Danger the vessel suddenly struck a sunken rock with such force that within 20 minutes she was a wreck. The actual number of personnel aboard is in some doubt but, according to the Times newspaper of the day `as accurately as can be ascertained` is put at 638. The survivors comprised 113 Army personnel (all ranks), 6 Royal Marines, 54 seamen (all ranks), 7 women and 13 children. These figures may not be completely accurate as muster rolls and books were lost with the ship.
