Coralie Horlock

The ship Coralie Horlock (Official Number 114649) was captured at the start of the First World War in August 1914 at Hamburg.

The shipowners F W Horlock & Co of Mistley, Essex decided they were unable to pay the crew of Coralie Horlock  in whole or part whilst they were interned in Germany. This resulted in the landmark court Horlock v Beal Case

A full list of the crew can be found at Index of Seamen and Fishermen POW
