White Star Line RMS Olympic Unique Collection of Messages WW1 HMS Audacious H&W
A unique collection of messages sent to Harland & Wolff from the National Sailors' and Firemen's Union - relating to the passage and wages of Olympic Crewmen. If you're reading this you'll know the background story of HMS Audacious and her sinking after hitting a mine on 27th October 1914 in the waters North of Ireland. Olympic hove to and tried to help take Audacious in tow.

In the event, of course, she foundered. The event was kept rather quiet. These messages detail the conversation over the men booked to meet Olympic on her planned return to Belfast to act as'runners' - but who were subsequently laid off as Olympic was delayed by the Audacious incident.

They document the fact that plans had originally been made to sail Olympic from Belfast to the Clyde upon her return to Belfast. Some are single sheets, others consist of up to three. Very very unusual and I hope they end up in a great collection - they'd look amazing in a large frame. Time for me to pass this stuff on. Blue folder and paperweight not included in this sale!

Costs beyond that are applied by GSP and not within my control. I write this to avoid misunderstanding when costs and delays arise beyond my control.
