A photocopy of the article from the East Anglian Daily Times dated 12th August 1954. A small paragraph (starred): 'The s.s. Malines and s.s. St Denis were caught in Rotterdam Harbour by the invading Germans as they were taking aboard British evacuees. The St Denis was scuttled; the Malines, under the command of Captain Mallory, and against appalling odds, succeeded in escaping down-river and so to Tilbury with 178 souls alive aboard. A few days' later she was evacuating troops from France. Off Dunkirk her master put his ship alongside the torpedoed destroyer Grafton and took aboard over a thousand souls.'
