Dunedin Star

From right alongside and above the after end of the ship the airmen could see that there did not appear to be anybody on board, but almost in line with her stern gun they could see on the beach the disabled motor lifeboat in which passengers and some of the crew had escaped from the wreck, and further inland, almost in line with the Royal Air Force rescue launch stowed athwartship on the deck, they could see a knot of people sitting or lying around a small sand dune. Prominent on the after deck were two huge tanks stowed as deck cargo.
