    Thank you Robert(Legge)for your recommendation.
    Re my query about wooden steamships for the U.S. Shipping Board in WW1 I have been directed to an article by Donald Shomette entitled ‘The Ghost Fleet at Mallows Bay’ on Google. A sad tale as most of these ships were taken to Mallows Bay and burnt after the war. The remains of many of the half submerged hulks can be seen there today.
