The GLADOVA arrived in distress having received a severe knocking about, and various members of the crew were rendered hors de combat, one seaman’s leg having been broken so long as five weeks before arrival, and, refusing to set properly. Water was also getting very short, and paraffin had practically come to an end. On board were two tons of explosives, this had to be removed before the vessel could be brought into the inner Harbour for repairs. Sails and ironwork were the principal requirements. – The repairs were expected to be completed by mid-December. – On 14th December a fire broke out in the cargo. This was put out by pumping from the local tug SAMSON. – Repairs to deck and forecastle were finished by 26th February 1909 but next morning a second fire broke out in the cargo. – The deck was repaired again, and GLADOVA left Stanley on 20th March having incurred a repair bill of £3,663-16-1d. – An inquiry into probable arson could not establish the perpetrator, no action taken.
