History of Artefact Found on the Orlop deck on the ship in 1982. there were hundreds of shoes found in the excavation. Some of the crew (whole skeletons) were found with their shoes still on. There were varying styles of shoes. Everyone had a pair of shoes but a lot had holes in them. They were not always the latest in fashion at the time.

Special Memories ‘When you see the shoes lined up in the store it conveys the depth of the tragedy and the loss of almost six hundred men. There were between twelve and thirty survivors. One was Dutch and called Fleming.’
