Capt. Assenius Nyrerod


Thank you for your efforts in establishing your Union Castle website.  I came across it while searching for information on my Great Grandfather Aasenius Nyrerod (1856-1942).  

Mr. Nyrerod was, I believe the Captain of the S.S. Gaika at the turn of the last century.  His duties included the mail run to the Cape from Southhampton.  After retiring to Canada he was summoned back to England to utilize his skills during WWI.

Perhaps someone who reads your site will have information they would kindly share regarding Captain Nyrerod or the S.S. Gaika.

I hope the attached photo of Capt. Nyrerod (on the left) and his crew aboard the S.S. Gaika will be of interest to others…
