The Birkenhead Dock Disaster, March 6, 1909

In 1909, a coffer dam, holding back millions of gallons of water while an extension to Birkenhead Docks was being dug out behind it, burst killing 14 men.  The author, whose uncle was one of the only 3 survivors, investigates the tragedy and the cover up which followed.  He reconstructs the events of that night of horror and its anguished aftermath.
