Evangelista had certainly been engaged in

revictualling an enemy submarine.


The rough weather and the approach of

night made it impossible either to tow the schooner

or to communicate with the shore - it was also

dangerous for the Pothuau to remain stationary -

and the Evangelista was therefore sunk, the captain

taken prisoner and the crew released.


On examination of the captain it is

proved that his paper were in order. the fact of

their being Turkish was due to their having been

made out before the suzerainty of Turkey was annulled,

and the same applies to the passports of the crew.


The captain states that he left Kerynia

in November last for Rhodes, where he stopped, owing

to the bad weather, all December, when he was

compelled to leave by the Italian authorities. He

took on board 40 sacks of soap and bought sand for

ballast.


The French consul at Rhodes confirms all

these statements. The schooner then went to

Castelorizo where it stopped for some time and was

then visited by the French authorities and the

papers visèd. No odour of petrol was observed,

nor anything suspicious.


The vessel left Castelorizo for Kerynia but

owing to bad weather was obliged to put in to Paphos:

for the same reason the captain anchored at some

distance from the port, to get better shelter.
