SAVA MICHAEL OF KYRENIA

I am 20 years of age. I am a sailor.

I am son of Michael Sava Captain of Evangelistria,

I left on the 15th November, 1915, on the

Evangelistria as one of the crew. We went to

Rhodes. There were the Captain, 4 sailors, and

Tanayi Sava, the merchant. We discharged our

cargo at Rhodes. It took us 7 or 8 days. We

took about 15 days to unload on account of the bad

weather. We had a full cargo of olive refuse - no

sand as ballast. we remained at Rhodes until the

weather became better. We put in the ship 40 sacks

of soap and shingle mixed with sand from the beach.

We had nothing else. We went to Castelorizo. It

too kus one day to get there. I cannot remember

the date. I can read or write. We had a strong

wind but fair weather from Rhodes to Catelorizo.

We went there because of the weather. We stayed

there 7 or 8 days. The French in occupation came

and looked at the ship - four or five of them -

they were the Customs. They went all over it.

They examined it and saw what we had on board - only

40 sacks of soap - and shingle and sand. We only

had one bottle of paraffin for our lanterns - we

only had one bottle when we left Kyrenia. It was

kept in the cabin. We had no tin when we left

Kyrenia. We use to fill our lanterns on deck.

The bottle is a large one and would contain

about two

whisky bottles

500 drachms. We bough some petroleum at Rhodes -

we filled up the bottle. We had no other

petroleum
