This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile19376/shipwreck-(Lady-Elizabeth)-Falkland.htm>shipwreck (Lady Elizabeth) Falkland</a></b><br><br>This is the barque Lady Elizabeth<br />
Under a Norwegian Flag she arrived in the Falklands in 1913 with a cargo of lumber out of Vancouver for Delagoa. She struck the Uranie rock near Berkeley Sound, limped into Stanley, and was condemned as an insurance write-off. She acted as a storage hulk moored in Stanley Harbour for many years, until she broke her moorings in a storm in 1931 and drifted ashore to her present striking location in Whalebone Cove.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/393412Clipboard02.jpg>

Here is another wreck of a barque!

The Jhelum was a 3 mast barque built in Liverpool in 1849. She was damaged rounding Cape horn in 1870 and upon reaching the Falklands she was scuttled. Despite being the oldest wreck in Stanley she remains possibly the best preserved.
