THE BURNING OF THE SARDINIA. LLANDUDNO MAN AMONG THE RESCUING PARTY. The following letter has been received from Frank Johnson, of Anglesea House, Llandudno, A.B. on board H.M'S. "Glory": H.M.S. "Glory," 1st Dec. 1908. Instead of war breaking out we had orders to go. back to Malta, at all speed with two destroyers under our care. A very rough passage, but of course I am quite used to it now. When we arrived at Malta we watered and went round the Island with the Duke of Con- naught to inspect the forts, and went, into harbour the same day. Nothing happened till Wednesday last, when the "Sardinia" caught fire and ran aground just, oujtside the harbour. We manned all the boats and went to the rescue, and it was the worst sight I have ever seen in my life. When she foundered we went alongside, but owing to the rough sea we had to go round to the weather side, at which I thought I would never see home. Again it was a miracle that we were not capsized, anyhow wet got round all right and saved 28 people. The remaiinder over the stern could not be rescued owing to the flames. I saw three, Araibs drop into the water and get cut to pieces by the steamer's screw. After being nearly suffocated by the smoke we got clear; no sooner had we done so than an explosion took place from her forehold. We picked up a couple of dead bodies with no heads nor arms. A sight what I should never like to see again.
