Honourable Sir,


Michael Sava of Kyrenia, master of sailing-vessel

"Evangelistria" - British colours - loaded with 40 bags of

soap and bound from Rhodes to Limassol via Castellorizo,

was obliged by bad weahter to anchor at Mullia on Ist

Feburary, 1916. Owing to rough weather she was unable to

move from there; and on Sunday, the 6th instant, at 4.30

p.m. (approximately) a French war-ship, which was coming

oppostie to our port, after searching above-mentioned

vessel, ordered the sailors to enter a boat and, capturing

the master, sank it. I then sent a messenger for the Health

Officer to come and examine the four sailors and he did not

allow them to land but gave orders for them to be placed in

an empty vessel in the harbour, pending telegraphic

instructions from the Chief Medical Officer.

According to statements of the sailors, a boat

came from the war-ship, examined their papers, looked at

the flag, captured the captain and the papers, ordered the

sailors to enter a boat of their own and torpedoed the

vessel. It is understood that this was done for their not

hoisting up the flag. I think that, according to the state-

ments of the sailors, there was no other cargo on board

except the forty bags of soap.
