graveside service was held Thursday for a young girl who was killed 88 years ago in the Halifax Explosion.

Annie Perry Campbell was nine years old when two ships collided in Halifax Harbour on Dec. 6, 1917, causing the biggest man-made explosion at the time.

* CBC ARCHIVES: Halifax Explosion
* INDEPTH: City of Promise, City of Ruins

About 9,000 people were injured and 2,000 killed. Like many of the victims, Annie was buried quickly without a funeral.

But Jim Simpson, a local historian, felt the little girl deserved one, so he organized the graveside service at Fairview Lawn Cemetery.

A final farewell to Annie.

A final farewell to Annie.
"There were a lot of children that weren't found," he said. "One of the biggest special things about her is that she was just put in the ground and that was it."

Simpson said about 400 children were among the victims of the explosion.

Annie lived on Kenny Street, in Halifax's north end. She was the only member of her family to die in the blast. Her father, Robert Campbell, identified her body, according to provincial records.

Rev. Sandra Cox, of United Memorial Church, led Thursday's service.

"She was a little girl who lived during the war years. It was no easy time for anyone, but it must have been especially difficult for the children," she said.

"Then the worst thing of all happened; the war was brought to the Halifax Harbour."

Simpson has also made sure Annie's gravesite has a headstone.

The Halifax Explosion:
On Dec. 6, 1917, a collision in Halifax Harbour led to the biggest man-made explosion in the world before the era of the atomic bomb. The blast levelled most of the city and sent shards of glass and burning debris flying for miles. It left thousands dead, blinded or homeless. Although the explosion occurred before the creation of the CBC, the Canadian radio and TV network has retold the story throughout the years to ensure that this crucial event in Canadian history is not forgotten.

http://www.cbc.ca/halifaxexplosion/index.html.

December 6, 1917 dawned clear and sunny in Halifax. Before darkness fell, more than a thousand people would die, with another thousand to follow. Nine thousand more would be injured and maimed in the biggest man-made explosion the world had ever seen.

This website will take you through that terrible day and the days that followed. It will show how the Halifax Explosion and the hard lessons it taught affect our lives today.

You will meet the heroes, the survivors, and families whose lives were changed in a great flash of light just after 9 a.m. on that December day.

ebroken stad
De zwaarste door mensen veroorzaakte explosie vóór de atoombom, zo worden de gebeurtenissen van 6 december 1917 in Halifax (Canada) omschreven. Door een menselijke fout bij het seinen botste in de haven het volgeladen Franse munitieschip Mont Blanc met het Belgische bevoorradingsschip Imo. Het Franse vaartuig, met aan boord honderden dozen munitie, tonnen pistoolkogels, TNT, zuur voor explosieven en heel brandbare benzol, vatte vuur en dreef brandend de haven in. De bemanning, op de hoogte van de lading, vluchtte in reddingsbootjes naar het vaste land en probeerde de bevolking te waarschuwen. Maar de matrozen spraken Frans en de Canadezen Engels, en in plaats van te vluchten kwamen de mensen nieuwsgierig dichterbij, om te kijken naar de spectaculaire brand. Twintig minuten na de aanvaring explodeerde het munitieschip. De ravage was enorm. Ruim tweeduizend doden, duizenden gewonden, velen blind door rondvliegend glas. Een groot deel van de stad was letterlijk weggevaagd en tot honderd kilometer verderop sneuvelden ruiten. Alsof het allemaal nog niet erg genoeg was werd de stad de volgende nacht getroffen door een sneeuwstorm, terwijl er tienduizenden slachtoffers dakloos rondzwierven. Een knap opgebouwde website van de Canadese publieke omroep, de CBC, herdenkt deze tragische gebeurtenis.

de mijnen van Mesen waren een geplande militaire actie,geen ongeval!!
de vergelijking tussen beide gevallen is dus moeilijk te klasseren Confused
de Mesen Ridge mijnen waren goed voor ongeveer 18.000 kg amatol,schietkatoen en ......??? per stuk..
de hoeveelheid explosieven aan boord van het schip in Halifax is mij onbekend?
kwestie het aantal slachtoffers,in Mesen variéerend van een 50,100 tot 800 doden en gewonden,(per mijn)
weegt natuurlijk niet door op de menselijke ravage in Halifax speechless
Terloops,er zouden nog 2 mijnen ,die niet werden tot ontploffing gebracht,nog ergens begraven zijn in deze streek.

Quote:
One chapter by a McMaster University historian compared 130 major explosion accidents occurring between 1899 and 1976. One-fourth occurred while explosive materials were being transported; 40 percent occurred during manufacturing; the rest occurred in a storage facility, such as a magazine or warehouse
Black powder (or "gunpowder") accidents have occurred for centuries, the largest on record being at a factory in Wisconsin in March 1911. The discovery of substances such as "guncotton," nitrogltcerine, and the "high explosives" picric acid and TNT in the late 1800s made explosives all the more powerful and deadly.
Magazine explosions aboard naval ships killed thousands during the 1900s to 1920s. Most of the munition industry explosions were due to improper storage or handling, methods for which were improved by WWII.
Some of the worst (excluding naval warships) accidential explosions up to 1976 noted were:

1915 Havre, Belgium - munitions plant - 110 killed, 1000 injured
1916 Pilsen, Bohemia - arsenal - 195 killed
1916 Kent, England - munitions factory - 106 killed
1916 La Pallice, France - picric acid factory - 170 killed
1916 Manchuria - munitions train - 200 killed or wounded
1916 Arkhangel'sk, Russia - munitions ship - 650 killed, more wounded
1917 Bloeweg, Bohemia - munitions plant - 400 killed, 625 wounded
1917 Henningsdorf, Germany - munitions plant - 300 killed or injured
1917 Halifax, Canada - munitions ship - 1800 killed, more wounded
1918 Oakdale, PA - chemical works - 100 killed, 300 wounded
1918 Nottingham, England - munitions plant - 134 killed, 250 injured
1918 Hamont Station, Belgium - ammunition train - 1800 German soldiers killed
1918 Wollersdorf, Austria - munitions plant - 276 killed (mostly girls)
1918 Morgan, NJ - munitions plant - 94 killed
1919 Longwy, France - munitions train - 64 killed
1921 Hiroshima, Japan - powder magazine - 100 killed
1921 Oppau, Germany - chemical works - 561 killed, 1500 injured
1924 Hokkaido, Japan - dynamite explosion - 120 killed, 200 injured
1925 Caju Island, Brazil - arsenal - 600 injured, 300 dead
1931 Nictheroy, Brazil - munitions plant - 100 killed, 300 injured
1931 Canton, China - arsenal - 100 killed
1932 Nanking, China - ammunition depot - 100 killed
1934 La Libertad, El Salvador - magazine - 250 killed
1935 Reinsdorf, Germany - munitions plant - 102 killed, 723 injured
1935 Lanchow, China - arsenal - 2000 killed
1937 New London, TX - gas - 413 students killed
1941 Polichka, Czechoslovakia - munitions plant - 80 killed
1941 Smederovo, Yugoslavia - ammunition dump - 1500 killed, 2000 wounded
1942 Limbourg Province, Belgium - chemical works - 100 killed, 1000 injured
1943 Bari, Italy - munitions ship - more than 1000
1944 Bombay, India - munitions ship - 1376 killed
1944 Bergen, Norway - munitions ship - 200 killed, 2000 injured
1944 Port Chicago, CA - munitions ship - 320 killed
1944 Cleveland, Ohio - liquid natural gas storage tank - 130 killed
1944 Staffordshire, England - munitions depot - 70 killed
1945 Bari, Italy - munitions ship - 360 killed, 1730 injured
1947 Texas City, TX - chemical (2 days) - 552 killed, 3000 injured, 200 missing
1947 Cadiz, Spain - munitions - 149 killed, more wounded
1948 Ludwigshafen, West Germany - chemical works - 201 killed, 3818 wounded
1956 Cali, Columbia - dynamite - 1200 killed
1960 Havana, Cuba - munitions ship - 100 killed, 200 injured
1964 Bone, Algeria - munitions ship - 100 killed, 160 injured
1976 Lapua, Finland - munitions plant - 43 killed, 70 injured
The study concluded that when certain criteria were factored (blast area, damage, people killed, amount of explosives involved. etc.), the 1917 Halifax Explosion was the worst man-made explosion prior to the Nuclear Age. Other explosions had more loss-of-life, more damage, etc. but the Halifax ratings combining all criteria added up to the worst single incident.

The Guinness Book of World Records 2001 affords the 1917 Explosion the "Worst Explosion on Board a Ship."



Merk op dat het "treinongeluk" bij Hamont (een ander topic) hier 1800 doden vermeldt, in andere bronnen is dit aantal 1000.
Overigens het gaat om accidents en dat kun je de ontploffende mijnen bij Mesen niet noemen, net zo min als de atoombommen bijvoorbeeld.

sowieso is 1800 man in een trein redelijk asociaal veel. Raar dat ik daar nooit van gehoord heb trouwens, ook niet toen ik zelf een stukje schreef over een ander groot treinongeluk in WO1 Confused

THE HALIFAX EXPLOSION: 6TH DECEMBER 1917.

At 9:05 on the 6th December 1917, a munition ship exploded in Halifax harbour, (Nova Scotia, Canada). This explosion was so vast that it killed over 2,000 people and completely flattened two square kilometres of northern Halifax. This was the greatest explosion of the Great war, and the largest man-made explosion until the dropping of the bomb at Hiroshima in 1945.

The war in Europe demanded and consumed vast amounts of people and materials from the new world. Halifax is a deep natural harbour, which was ice-free. since the 1812 war, the harbour was defended by a series of forts, Halifax was now a garrison town, as well as a naval dockyard and harbour. In early 1917 the admiralty officially introduced the convoy system to help reduce the losses from u-boats. The inner harbour, known as the BEDFORD BASIN, (See illustration page), was ideal for an anchorage to asssemble the convoys, and was used in both world wars.

In December 1917, the Bedford basin was full of merchant ships. The naval escort were in the outer harbour; opposite the naval intallations, One of these was HMS HIGHFLYER; a Hermes class Cruiser. In August 1914 the Highflyer had caught the German ex-liner turned Armed Merchant Raider; Kaiser Wilhelm Der Grosse, refuelling at sea, and sunk her off the West African coast at Rio del oro, (Halpern 1994).

The harbour was also open to neutral ships, (though their crews were not allowed ashore for security reasons). One of these was a Norweigian ship the SS IMO, she was steaming alone, and had 'Belgium Relief' written on her sides to emphasise her 'neutrality' to u-boats, she was on her way to New York to load relief supplies for Belgium. The IMO was behind schedule by having to wait for coal, with this and being empty, she may have been travelling at a faster speed than normal, when she left the Bedford Basin.

The French Ship SS MONT BLANC came from New York where she was loaded with a cocktail of explosives and volatile material. The ship had her holds lined with wood, using non sparking copper nails, but too many volatile cargos had been mixed together. The Mont Blanc entered Halifax with 2,300 tons of wet and dry picric acid; (used for making lyddite foir artillery shells), 200 tons of trinitrotoluene, (TNT), 10 tons of gun cotton, with drums of Bezol; (High Octane fuel) stacked on her decks. The Mont Blanc was on her way to the Bedford Basin, but arrived too late to be let through the anti submarine nets, and had to wait until the next day to enter the harbour.

On the morning of the 6th December 1917, the IMO weighed anchor and headed for the sea, while the Mont BLanc entered the harbour; the collided in the bottleneck known as 'the Narrows'. Some of the Benzol dums broke loose, spilling on the deck, and soon caught fire. The intensity of the fire, and it's volatile cargo, Captain Le Medec ordered all hands to abandon ship. TheMont Blanc on fire, drifted towards Halifax where she rested against pier 6; (star [*] on the illustration page).

At around 9.05 am the Mont Blanc blew up, the whole ship disintergrated. The pressure blast flattened the immediate area for two square kilometers, and devastated an area of 325 acres, most of the windows in Halifax were blown out, (Kitz,1989). About 1,600 people were killed by the blast., eight crew of HMS Highflyer were splattered against the ship's superstructure, (Monnon, 1977). A mushroom-shaped cloud rose kilometres high, and 3,000 tons of the splattered ship rained down on the area. The ship's gun landed near Alboro Lake (2km away), and the stock of one of her anchor's landed in a wood 5km away (See illustration page). The Narrows were boiling with the slashes of shrapnel, also falling were rocks;believed to had been sucked up from the harbour bed.

Next came the pressure wave which washed up the shore line and rocked the ships nearby, some from their moorings, some smaller vessels (e.g. Tugs) were overwhelmed and sunk. This man-made 'tsunami' travelled across to the shores of Dartmouth, it was funnelled up Tufts cove, (due north of the explosion) where there was a settlement of the Micmac; (native American tribe of the area). The whole encampment was washed away by the gigantic wave.

The Halifax area opposite the Narrows was heavily populated, a rising hill gave an excellent view of the ship on fire. Naturally there were many spectators, which resulted in high cases of blindness/eye injuries among the thousands of wounded, as glass windows shattered.

After the blast, the rain of shrapnel, and the destructive wave, came the fires. The blast had turned houses into kindle wood, and also overturned coal and wooden stoves, which were in widespread use due to the winter temperature. Being a Naval port and Garrison town, there were lots of 'disciplined and organised' rescue workers available, but an hour after the explosion a rumour spread that the Naval Magazine at Wellngton Barracks, (near Admiralty House), was on fire and there was going to be another explosion. There was a massed exodus away from the north, to citadel hill and the parks to the south. The naval magazine did not blow, and was made safe by dumping its contents into the harbour. Slowly the rescuers moved back to the area, however, by nightfall another factor was to contribute to the final death toll; the worst blizzard for years. "It was almost as if Fate, unconvinced that the exploding chemicals in the hold of the Mont Blanc had struck a death blow to Halifax, was now calling upon nature to administer the coup de grace". (Bird, 1995, page 108).

Other rumours were widespread. Halifax was being bombed by Zeppelins, or maybe a German Naval bombardment. Anti-German hysteria was high, which was taken out on survivors with German sounding names. Earlier in the year, in Britain, a munitions factory had blown up, even though it had been proved to be an accident, people prefered to believe it was the 'darstardly Hun'. This was proof enough, (Sainsbury, 1917). The same stubbon belief, that it was 'somehow' the work of the Germans, still persists in Halifax today, by some survivors of the explosion, (Kitz, 1989).

News of the disaster spread quickly and funds came from around the world, even as far away as New Zealand. Most of the rescue relief came from the state of Massachusetts who sent the most comprehensive relief aid from the port of Boston. Not only medical staff and supplies, but food, clothing, transport, and even glass and glaziers. Every year Halifax presents Boston with a giant Christmas tree to show that thier help in December 1917 will not be forgotten.

It is 80 years since the Halifax explosion, what is thier to see at Halifax? In September 1997 I toured the area. In the CITADEL there is a museum which graphically illustrates Halifax Military History, emphasizing the defensive forts of the harbour. At the MARITIME MUSEUM OF THE ATLANTIC, there is an exhibition with video, "a moment in time" on the 1917 explosion, with artifacts found on the site, one of them a clock, broken and scortched by the explosion is very poignant, a reminder that this was the largest man-made explosion untill Hiroshima. Admiralty House, (which had its roof blown off in the explosion), is now the MARITIME COMMAND MUSEUM. Before the explosion Admiralty House was used as a naval hospital, one of the patients was Alfred Sprinket, who after the explosion left his bed, and went over to the house opposite, which did not sustain too much damage, but had the door blown off, and found an empty bed to get into until rescued. (Sprinket, 1996) I stayed in a B&B opposite the Maritime Command Museum, and wondered if it was the same house that Sprinket had found shelter in. At Fort Needham Hill in 1985 a monument to the victims of the explosion was unvieled. The MEMORIAL BELL TOWER has a carillon of bells taken from a church in the blast area. At FAIRVIEW CEMETERY there is a memorial to the unidentified of the "Great Disaster". I found a headstone to four members of the Stacey family; all died 6th December 1917. There was a plaque by the headstone, (See illustration page), to another family member killed on the same day. He was in the "66th Regiment". The local militia consisted of the 63rd Halifax Rifles and the 66th Princes Louise Fusiliers, (Monnon,1977). Also in this cemetery are 125 victims of the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.

The 1914-18 war was the first world wide war. Combatants came from many areas of the world, and the battlefields encompassed many continents and many oceans. Halifax was a part of that war, not only was she a major supply line to the trenches, (in people, horses, supplies and munitions), but for one terrible day; Halifax, Nova Scotia, experienced the death and destruction of this worldwide conflict. "A son of the Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Eric Grant, on leave from France, said that the sights were worse than anything he had seen in the trenches". (Kitz, 1989, page 60).

'A Vision of Regeneration'

The dynamic story of how Halifax was rebuilt in the years immediately following the disaster is re-created through 150 heritage photographs, maps, architectural plans and documents, plus useful background information. An ideal source for school projects – and a powerful visual memory of a city destroyed and rebuilt.

Halifax Explosion Remembrance Book – A List of Those Who Died

NSARM is pleased to host the online version of a project recently completed by the Halifax Foundation. The 'Halifax Explosion Remembrance Book' is the first really definitive listing for those killed in the disaster of 6 December 1917. The online version features a searchable database with detailed information for 1950 casualties – more than 300 of whom are newly-confirmed and identified victims.

Halifax Explosion Film
View thirteen minutes of black-and-white moving images attributed to professional cameraman W.G. MacLaughlan. The film is an early news documentary from the silent-screen era, capturing in eerie silence the waste and devastation of a city destroyed, and the efforts that went into rebuilding it. Newly re-mastered in digital format and running in close to 'real time', these film clips provide the clearest views and the closest details ever seen of the terrible days immediately following 6 December 1917.

Personal Narratives
Five first-hand survivor accounts of the Explosion, ranging from a letter written on 10 December 1917 by a Halifax housewife, to the reminiscences of an elderly woman in 1985, looking back to the events of 6 December when she was six years old and at Chebucto School.

Halifax Relief Commission
The most important archival resource for studying the Halifax Explosion is the nearly 60 meters of records accumulated by the Halifax Relief Commission, 1917-1978. View a brief description of this material to plan for in-depth research.

Shortly after 8 a.m. on Dec. 6, 1917, the French munition ship Mont Blanc left Halifax's outer harbour en route to Bedford Basin.
To reach this safe inner harbour, the 320-foot Mont Blanc had to navigate through the Narrows, a 1.6-kilometre-long, 500-metre-wide passage separating the city of Halifax and the town of Dartmouth.

Burning spectacle
Excitement turned to horror within minutes
