Michael Veitch, Hell Ship

Meet the author

For more than a century and a half, a grim tale has passed down through Michael Veitch's family: the story of the Ticonderoga, a clipper ship that sailed from Liverpool in August 1852, crammed with poor but hopeful emigrants - mostly Scottish victims of the Clerances and the potato famine. A better life, they belived, awaited them in Australia. Three months later, a ghost ship crept into Port Phillip Bay flying the dreaded yellow flag of contagion. On her her horrific three - month voyage, deadly typhus had erupted, killing a quarter of Ticonderoga's passengers and leaving many more desperately ill. Michael Veitch is the great-great-grandson of James William Henry Veitch and Annie Morrison, two survivors of dreaded voyage and in his book "Hell Ship" he shares their incredible story.
