If they came on the Bellarden, how could a porter on the Herminius ID SK and Etta? Not an option

        It was the porter on the SOLDIER PRINCE who remembered SD and Etta. So Butch did not sail with them Point is, unless Butch had already been down in SA earlier, they would be unlikely to so early have ... more
