The Helena Modjeska salvaging affair.







With all this debate over the wood washed ashore from the "Sinegorsk", I have found an article in the Margate Historical Society archive for downloading that makes interesting reading. It is about the salvaging of cargo from the "Helena Modjeska" and 12 Margate salvagers ending up appearing in court.

Yes, he moved into Alexandra Homes, this story was published about 8 years ago and he died a few years later.
