SS Carare


Media TitleSS Carare
Media Notes"Carare" was completed at the Birkenhead yard of Cammell Lairds in 1927 for Elders & Fyffes. This photo is of her being assisted by a tug at Avonmouth Docks, near Bristol, England, sometime in the 1930s. This Company ran merchant ships to the West Indies for the banana trade and also accomodated a few passengers. The ships were well turned out and a very familiar sight in the docks.

Her end came having left Avonmouth for Jamaica on the evening tide of May 28th 1940 with a complement of 60 passengers and crew. Some hours later, off Countisbury Head near Lynmouth, she was holed in no. 1 hold by a mine. She took 20 minutes to sink, giving time for the rescue of all but 7 including the ship's doctor.
