A tale of nautical history from Ed Roberts

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

Ed Roberts, former MHA for 23 years and Newfoundland’s Lt. Governor from 2002-2008, has gotten into the habit of writing little tales of our province’s history for the Transcontinental papers like The Compass. “… few ever heard about the mutiny that claimed the SS Diana, one of the best-known wooden sealing vessels,” writes Roberts. “They had fallen to quarrelling among themselves, because after they set her afire they realized that by doing so they had destroyed their year’s voyage, and thus forfeited any earnings. Their income was to come from a share of the sale of the 7,000 seals aboard her.” To read the interesting tale, click the link below! Source: The Compass
