A Collier of 804 Tons that was sunk by German Aircraft on 25 July 1940, a day that became known as “Black Thursday” due to the amount off losses due to the Germans taking full advantages of their new Airfields in Northern France. This ship was part of Convoy CW8 and had a cargo of coal she was carrying from Blyth to Portsmouth. She had already been attacked on July 9 but survived that to suffer a direct hit off Dover.
Diving: The wreck lies in a max depth of 33m and is quite proud in places, up to 9m. The bow is quite intact and on its side, the remainder of the wreck that I have seen rises up quite proud on its starboard side, but has collapsed along its centre and port side. The proudest point appeared to be a boiler. The wreck is quite clean as far as fishing nets and line but it is quite inshore and can be subject to very poor viz.
Each time I dived it we only had 1 to 3 metres of very dark viz and she looks to be worth a few more visits.
