The 12th of February History Calendar

A Ketch

On this day 121 years ago in 1896 the Stather built Hull fishing ketch H1008, was sunk five hours after a collision with another Hull smack, Unity, H1455. The Unity got away with no more than a broken bowsprit. The blame was put on the deckhand on Speratus, who was on watch at the time.
