Hospital H Eddom

Harry Eddom Jnr. was the sole survivor of the loss of the Ross Cleveland H61 in 1968, the Ross Cleveland was the third Hull Trawler to be lost within a month. Harry never spoke publicly of the harrowing experiences of that fateful trip. On Feb 04th the Ross Cleveland was dodging and laying to in Isafordur, there was a force 11 wind blowing with mountainous seas and constant snow storms. Around 12 o`clock Skipper Phil Gay ordered half speed ahead and then full speed ahead to bring her head into the wind. As she was comming round she was struck by a large sea, lying to port she continued to pile water on the ship and she could not come back up and right herself. Harry made his way to the rear of the vessel where he saw some hands launching a liferaft, a wave then washed him off the ship, the next thing he knew, was that he was in the raft with the Bosun Walter Hewitt 30 and Sparehand Barry Rogers 18. During the night the raft drifted and was bailed but Walter dressed in thick clothing and Barry wearing only a t shirt and underpants succumbed to exposure in the extreme temperatures of -40 and died. The raft was blown ashore and scaling a cliff Harry made his way some distance overland untill he found some shelter.

05th Feb Harry suffering frostbite and close to death was found sheltering in a wooden cabin by a 14 year old boy and taken to hospital by rescue boat.

Seen here in hospital in Isafjordur , he was then flown to Reykjavik and the next day to Glasgow. An elderly women from Akranes had forwarded a pair of knitted mittens to Harry via the trawler agent, asking that he wore them on his next trip to Iceland.
