Hi Mark

I try to clear some questions about the survivors from the ships hit. Probably you can help me here:

AVOCETA: According to Tennent, 40 survivors were picked up by HMS PERIWINKLE and 3 survivors by CERVANTES and later transferred to HMS STARLING (apparently an error because the ship of Cdr Walker was HMS STORK at that time).
You write that the survivors were picked up by HMS PERIWINKLE and HMS JASMINE. Is Tennent wrong about CERVANTES?

Can you confirm that the lifeboat that made it to the Irish coast after 2 weeks had 17 survivors aboard: 9 from PETREL, 7 from LAPWING and 1 from CORTES

From which corvette was the boat that picked up 5 survivors (2 from LAPWING, 2 from CORTES, 1 from PETREL)?

Best regards
