Her father originally went to Turkey as the representative of the East India Company at the beginning of the nineteenth century. His business flourished until it was destroyed in the Janissary Rebellion, so he became the British Consul at Brussa. She therefore grew up in the Middle East and acquired a valuable knowledge of its peoples. Whilst visiting her sister Sophy Longworth, the wife of the British Consul at Bitholia in Macedonia, she met her future husband John Blunt who was at that time the Vice Consul at Uskab in Albania. They were married at the Bitholia Consulate on 25th November 1858, with members of religious faiths taking part.

Lady Blunt was particularly connected with the Royal Navy, by whom she was affectionately nicknamed ‘Aunt Fanny’, and in return she would often refer to ‘her nephews’, some of whom became very high ranking Naval officers. The Blunts took up residence in Malta in 1902 and very soon became part of the social life of the island. She was widowed when her husband died in 1916, and whilst suffering from ill health in her later years she was looked after by her adopted daughter Jeanne Paliuzzo (Paluizza).

During the next three years he served in Cyprus, Malta, and Egypt. In 1896 he went on Special Service in Egypt and served throughout the campaign, being Mentioned in Despatches, and being awarded the Queen’s Sudan Medal, the Khedive’s Sudan Medal with two clasps.

Patrick COLLINS, was a Stoker on the Ellerman & Papayanni Line vessel the 1514 tons s.s.Sardinia which left Liverpool with a cargo of general goods bound for Alexandria in Egypt. Malta was the last port of call and she sailed out of Grand Harbour just before 10 a.m. on Wednesday the 25th November 1908, carrying a crew of 39, 12 saloon passengers, and 142 Arabs from Morocco who were travelling to Mecca. She was only about 200 yards beyond the breakwater when thick black smoke was seen emerging from the starboard side, followed by a series of explosions. There was a very strong wind at the time fanning the flames along the side of the ship and high into the air.

The ship turned as if it was going to re-enter the harbour, but was then seen to be following a circular path, and ran aground on the rocks off Fort Ricasoli. There was then a large explosion, with flames shooting skywards, and flaming debris littering the shore. Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers.

He survived the disaster and was taken to the Soldiers' and Sailors' Institute, so was able to attend the funerals on the 26th. A few weeks later he received some financial assistance from the 'Sardinia Disaster Relief Fund' which had been set up in Malta. However, due to shock he was unable to work for several weeks, and lived with his wife in Liverpool

Ed. FARRELL, was a Quarter Master on the Ellerman & Papayanni Line vessel the 1514 tons s.s.Sardinia which left Liverpool with a cargo of general goods bound for Alexandria in Egypt. Malta was the last port of call and she sailed out of Grand Harbour just before 10 a.m. on Wednesday the 25th November 1908, carrying a crew of 39, 12 saloon passengers, and 142 Arabs from Morocco who were travelling to Mecca. She was only about 200 yards beyond the breakwater when thick black smoke was seen emerging from the starboard side, followed by a series of explosions. There was a very strong wind at the time fanning the flames along the side of the ship and high into the air.

The ship turned as if it was going to re-enter the harbour, but was then seen to be following a circular path, and ran aground on the rocks off Fort Ricasoli. There was then a large explosion, with flames shooting skywards, and flaming debris littering the shore. Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers.

He died in the disaster, and his body was not recovered. His sister was Mrs. SINCLAIR, sixty years old, who looked after him when he was ashore living with her in England

F. HUGHES, 2nd Steward, on the Ellerman & Papayanni Line vessel the 1514 tons s.s.Sardinia which left Liverpool with a cargo of general goods bound for Alexandria in Egypt. Malta was the last port of call and she sailed out of Grand Harbour just before 10 a.m. on Wednesday the 25th November 1908, carrying a crew of 39, 12 saloon passengers, and 142 Arabs from Morocco who were travelling to Mecca. She was only about 200 yards beyond the breakwater when thick black smoke was seen emerging from the starboard side, followed by a series of explosions. There was a very strong wind at the time fanning the flames along the side of the ship and high into the air.

The ship turned as if it was going to re-enter the harbour, but was then seen to be following a circular path, and ran aground on the rocks off Fort Ricasoli. There was then a large explosion, with flames shooting skywards, and flaming debris littering the shore. Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers. He died in the disaster, and his body was not recovered

Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers.

Captain Littler's body was recovered and he was originally buried in Ta Braxia cemetery, but a few days later sent to England. He was 45 years old and left a widow with a 14 year old daughter plus a 25 year old son from a former marriage.

She was only about 200 yards beyond the breakwater when thick black smoke was seen emerging from the starboard side, followed by a series of explosions. There was a very strong wind at the time fanning the flames along the side of the ship and high into the air.

The ship turned as if it was going to re-enter the harbour, but was then seen to be following a circular path, and ran aground on the rocks off Fort Ricasoli. There was then a large explosion, with flames shooting skywards, and flaming debris littering the shore. Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers. He died in the disaster, and his body was not recovered.

There was a very strong wind at the time fanning the flames along the side of the ship and high into the air.

The ship turned as if it was going to re-enter the harbour, but was then seen to be following a circular path, and ran aground on the rocks off Fort Ricasoli. There was then a large explosion, with flames shooting skywards, and flaming debris littering the shore. Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers.

The church of St. Mary Magdalene in Valletta was used by Roman Catholic soldiers stationed at the near-by Fort St Elmo Barracks and men of the Royal Navy and their families from the adjoining Camerata Barracks.

Just within the church's main door on the right hand side there is a small marble plaque. It shows two central figures, a soldier wearing a khaki uniform and Wolseley Pattern Foreign Service Helmet who is having his hands bandaged by a long haired female in biblical robes. Above her head is the badge of the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service. At the bottom is a scroll with words from the Bible, Matthew 25:40, which is slightly painted over. In the lower centre is a dedication which although also painted over, some of the text is legible: ……….TO THE MEMORY OF……....MARY A. WALSHE Q.A.I.M.N.S.R. DIED AT MALTA 19 VIII 1915.

Albert WARING, was a Lamptrimmer on the Ellerman & Papayanni Line vessel the 1514 tons s.s.Sardinia which left Liverpool with a cargo of general goods bound for Alexandria in Egypt. Malta was the last port of call and she sailed out of Grand Harbour just before 10 a.m. on Wednesday the 25th November 1908, carrying a crew of 39, 12 saloon passengers, and 142 Arabs from Morocco who were travelling to Mecca. She was only about 200 yards beyond the breakwater when thick black smoke was seen emerging from the starboard side, followed by a series of explosions. There was a very strong wind at the time fanning the flames along the side of the ship and high into the air.

The ship turned as if it was going to re-enter the harbour, but was then seen to be following a circular path, and ran aground on the rocks off Fort Ricasoli. There was then a large explosion, with flames shooting skywards, and flaming debris littering the shore. Since it was too dangerous for rescue boats to go alongside, the men and women on board had to jump into the sea in the hope of being picked up. Ten passengers and twenty-three members of the crew were saved, but there was a calamitous loss of life amongst the Arabs. Not all the bodies were recovered, and the final death toll was two European passengers, sixteen crew, and more than a hundred of the Arab passengers.

He survived the disaster and was taken to Soldiers' and Sailors' Institute, and was able to attend the funerals held on the 26th. A few weeks later he received some financial assistance from the 'Sardinia Disaster Relief Fund' which had been set up in Malta. He was married and living with his wife.
