Capt. Harry Rigby

Captain Rigby must have been forgiven for his part in the stranding of the "Dunottar Castle", maybe Sir Donald Curry in his old age was softening!   

For Captain Rigby was still in command of the "Dunottar" in 1900 at the time of the amalgamation, the new Union-Castle house flag, designed by Captain Robinson, was broken out at the masthead of the "Dunottar Castle" prior to sailing on the 17th March 1900.
