02/08/1952 Magnolia FV (GY482) [+1952] wreck
Magnolia FV (GY482) [+1952]In August 1952, Skipper Alf Walker and his crew on the ROSE OF ENGLAND, were nearing the end of their trip, when a nasty North-Easterly gale blew, creating a huge swell that lasted for several days. They called it a day and returned to Grimsby and landed their catch. When this was done some of the crew went home and the others began to secure the ship, when the Skipper heard his friend Stanley “ Snowy” Wing on the MAGNOLIA (also Harry Franklin’s), say on the radio that he required assistance as they were taking in water, 45 miles N.E of the Spurn Light Vessel. This was passed on to the owner’s office and they told the ROSE OF ENGLAND to take a pump out to them and help in every way they could. So they steamed towards the troubled MAGNOLIA, tired and hungry, and with only half her crew on board. When they found her, she was wallowing sluggishly in the heavy swell and down by the stern with her bows high out of the water. The pump was transferred when they where close enough together…..a dangerous maneuver in that weather, and this was soon set to work. Then it was decided to pass warps across and attempt to tow the MAGNOLIA to the Humber and home. When the two ships turned away from the swell to run before it, huge seas swept over her stern, washing the pump over the side. As the towing progressed, the Magnolia’s stern settled deeper in the water so the Skippers agreed over the radio to make plans to transfer all the men over to the ROSE OF ENGLAND. Then someone shouted “She’s going over, she’s turning over”. In seconds she was gone, just men swimming for their lives, clinging onto anything that was floating. The crew of the towing vessel had to chop the wires with an axe to prevent them from being dragged down with her. Three men lost their lives on the MAGNOLIA, Skipper Stanley Wing, Chief engineer Albert Forster and deckhand Roland Willis. The survivors were picked up in difficult circumstances and taken back to Grimsby. Only five crew took the ROSE OF ENGLAND out to save their fellow fishermen and they fought for forty hours, without sleep, food or drink. Brave men indeed! The ROSE OF ENGLAND continued fishing the North Sea until 1961, when she went to Belgium for scrap in November that year.

02/08/1940 Thames HMS (N71) (+1940) wreck
Thames HMS (N71) (+1940)2-3rd August 1940: River Class submarine lost in the North Sea. It is not known for certain how she met her fate. Most analyses comes to rest on the likelihood of her being sunk while passing through a minefield this night because she had been subject to a number of changes to her operating areas, the movement from one to the other taking her through minefields. She is attributed with sinking the German torpedo boat Luchs which was screening Gneisnau, her assumed target, and Nurnberg. Luchs came between between Thames and her target, and may have been only 50 yards or so away from Thames when her torpedo hit. Luchs exploded with considerable force and sank immediately, and thus Thames may have been fatally damaged either by the explosion itself, or by the sinking hull. [Other Source:] Another source says that she may have been sunk by depth charges dropped from a German flying boat, but the officially accepted likelihood is a mine. She had a complement of 61 Officers and Ratings; her commanding officer was Lt Cdr W D Dunkerley RN.
