This afternoon, or yesterday, a cargo vessel capsized in the Pentland Firth with no survivors so far. I think it was quite windy from the West up there yesterday. It was carrying cement and it reminds me of my fathers ship, 'The Pool Fisher', also heading to Runcorn where this vessel was going. She was carrying potash and shipped water in heavy weather. She sunk off the Isle of White, only two young men survived. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Pool_Fisher My father was taken off the ship in Holland just before she sailed and transferred to another James Fisher ship due to the Chief falling and braking his leg.
For the Grace of God and all that and I hope there are survivors from this current tragic event.
