Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection includes handwritten letters, typed correspondence, photographs, newspaper clippings, invoices, photographs, and pamphlets primarly regarding Count Carlo Zanardi Landi's steamship salvage business after World War I. Count Carlo Zanardi Landi was a Marine Superintendent of the Ocean Salvage Company Limited.
The Admiralty was a British authority that oversaw the functions of the Royal Navy. During and after World War I, the British Admiralty Salvage Section, as dictated by the Admiralty, was responsible for the salvaging of ships stranded at sea. Salvage duties included refloating, towing, pumping, dredging and repairing damage to ships. Some ships suffered major damage from torpedoes, while others only required to be patched, pumped or tugged to another location.
