The Royal Navy's 16-gun sailing sloop H.M.S. Camilla left the port of Hakodadi, on the island of Yeddo in Japan, on September 1, 1860, but never reached its destination further along the coast. A massive typhoon struck the area on September 9, 1860 and the authorities assumed that the Camilla had been lost with all hands in that storm.  (By John Osborne)
