 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The British screw steamer, the King Cadwallon collided with rocks in off the Esplanade on the 11th September 1929, and finally rested on shore after burning out. Interestingly, she caught alight approx. 11 km's off Durban and was abandoned. She continued drifting for 41 days in total until resting in East London. All that remains are remnants and the boilers are still pretty much intact. Tropical fish are common in the area.
