SS Gartmore/Gartshore, wreck site, East Weddell Sound


The iron steamship SS Gartshore  (sometimes called Gartmore) was built in 1880 in South Shields and registered there. She had several owners and names before being scuttled in East Weddell Sound on 14 September 1914. Exact details of its whereabouts are sketchy, but it is possible that the wreck remains have mingled with those of SS Empire Seaman
