Captain William Fretwell was Master of this ship, Cadmium, in 1914. You will find an interesting article in the Singapore Straits Times of 17 July and Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertisements about an issue he had with his crew - the Master was exonerated.

Later in 1914 he was recalled to Britain to serve in HMS Auxiliary Patrol. After the war he rejoined the company and was Master of the Petricola and Planorbis.

My great-grandfather was the Master of this ship ... his name was Capt. William Daniel of Aberdovey and Ilford.

I have an original photograph of this ship sent by Capt. Daniel to his daughter Myfanwy Daniel (my grandmother)
