15 February 1915
Presented to King George V, 1917
On 14 February open water appeared ¼ mile away from the ship and all hands hurried to seize ice saws, axes, shovels, chisels and picks to cut a sailing channel. Hurley captures the men’s strenuous efforts to free the ship, unhappily without success.
