Does anyone know anything about this wreck? I've just found out one of my relatives died whilst serving on her.

I know the ship hit a mine and went down on the 10th March 1941 and she was carrying coal from Blyth to Cowes.

Any info or hints oin where to get more inforation would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Jeff
