Hello Jean, my father's grandfather's brother, Johnathon Coombes, was on board the Gwendoline when she sank. It looks like we have something in common here.I believe he was a first mate at the time. A member of my dad's family named one of their daughters after the ship in his honour. The Coombes family were native to the Sunderland area for many years and had a long history of service in the merchant marine. I believe Johnathon was living in Middlesbrough at the time of this. I wish I could share this with my dad but he left us 2 weeks ago. He would have been keenly interested in this.I already have some newspaper articles on this but thanks anyway.
