Five letters from a 1908 legal action against the owners of the SS River Clyde were recently put up for sale on eBay. Unfortunately the first one, dated 12th May 1908, went to another buyer but I did manage to purchase the remaining four. 

While not directly related to the Gallipoli campaign they are nonetheless interesting documents that give a little glimpse into the history of the famous ship before she found her way to V-Beach.

Gary,

Many thanks for posting these letters.

They add to the history of a ship that played such an iconic role during the landings and the campaign itself.

Regards

Mal
