School Log Book Entry: Feb 16th 1909.
Owing to the wreck of the SS Penguin, several children were away today attending funerals. {{Newspaper report 16th Feb. 1909:
The heroine of the wreck of SS Penguin was Mrs HANNAN
who was accompanied by her husband and 4 children, all of
whom were drowned.  The most pathetic incident of all was the
death of her young baby, whom she strapped to the lifeboat
before it sheared off from the Penguin. Unfortunately when Mrs
HANNAN freed the little one from the boat it was found to be dead.}}
