Aquitania Grounding of 1919

I have come into possession of some documents curtoesy of Mersyside Research regarding the 1919 grounding of the Aquitania in the Mersey River. This grounding appears to have caused some substantial damage, and survey reports reference it well after the fact (1930's) and lingering effects of the grounding haunt her.

What I am wondering is who if anybody has some additional information on this grounding. I suspect (as does Mark Chirnside who has helped me out a lot in my search) that the Sauder brothers might have some information. Anything would be great. If you don't want to pass it here, feel free to contact me via email through the board.
