Sightings – St Mary’s Isles of Scilly
After many years of searching I finally found a green man on the Scilly Isles last year. I would love to know if anyone finds any more.
Place: St Mary’s Museum
Location: Captains chair taken from the Minnehaha which was grounded on Scilly Rock in 1910. The Minnehaha was built by Harland and Wolff and launched in 1900. On 18 April 1910 the liner grounded on rocks on Bryher in the Isles of Scilly while en route from London to New York. She remained stranded until 13 May when two tugs managed to pull her off the rocks. The cattle on board were saved by swimming them onto the island of Samson. In 1917 the Minnehaha sank within four minutes after being torpedoed by German U-boat U-48, with 43 fatalities off the Fastnet.
