shipwreck (Lady Elizabeth) Falkland

This is the barque Lady Elizabeth

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.
