The following are additions to the original story of the Galaxy's sad demise

Hans Knot adds an appropriate picture with a poignant PS:

I was working on a new chapter for the forthcoming Caroline book and dived a few times into the archive and found a photocopy Theo Dencker sent me in the eighties, the week after the ship was broken down at Kiel harbour. He went back to the place where he had taken the well-known photos a week before, and found the strip from the transmitter in the mud. After all these years it gives me still a thrill.

December 2004, it will be 40 years ago we got excited. I still love to think on those beautiful days.


A German newspaper clipping, depicting work commencing on the Galaxy's barnacle-encrusted hull was kindly supplied by Captain Bill Buninga's son Ron.
