It was a tragic occurrence, and the circumstances seem somewhat confusing. The two ships' captains each stated that their ship kept a steady course and it was the other that "did the unexpected". The Danish maritime court exonorated Captain Mitchell from blame (but that was really the only part of the court decision reported in the British newspapers). It was stated by the Danish captain that the prompt and efficient actions of Captain Mitchell and his crew, after the collision, saved many lives of both cadets and crew of GEORGE STAGE. It would be interesting to know what the maritime court actually said about the causes of the collision. The same court did later rule that the owners of ANCONA were liable for the cost of the raising and repair of GEORGE STADE. It is a bit confusing, but perhaps that was really an insurance matter?

. You can see that that 95205 was the British Official Number (almost a century before the IMO number was instituted. "Hugo & van Emmerik" were the Hamburg agents for the Leith, Hull & Hamburg company. You can ignore the reference to Walter Runciman & Co as they were not involved with Currie Line until the 1960s.
