St Paul Island: Ship Graveyard

by Ned Middleton
May 2000 issue of "SportDiver" magazine, with permission.

Please note the following inaccuracies in this article:
1.The lobster cannery was located on the Western side of the island. It's buildings were not used by the RCAF for a listening post. The RCAF used the wireless duplex located at Atlantic Cove on the Eastern side of the island.

2. The Laing twins did not die from Dyptheria caught from a passing ship. They died from contaminated water, possibly caused by the improper disposal of human waste in the coal bin in the winter prior to their arrival on the island. {There is an often repeated story that their were two children of a keeper on the Northeast in the 1800s who died after catching some illness from a passing ship, but no exact details have been apparent. But, these are not the children who are buried at Atlantic Cove}.
