FIRST EDITION AND A RARE ACCOUNT. The Sea Horse was one of three naval transports embarked from Ramsgate for Ireland, packed to the gills. There were no lifeboats, and though the wreck occurred less than a mile from shore the seas were too rough for rescue boats and less than 10% of the passengers survived.
