28/05/1918 Dirk HMT [+1918] wreck
Dirk HMT [+1918]Admiralty records state the Dirk was a trawler (hired in 1917), in fact she was a ferry owned by David MacBrayne, and was used for submarine patrol duties along with her sister ship the LOCHIEL. In peace time the vessels had carried passengers and mail around the Scottish isles. The Admiralty were to loose both of these vessels during the war and had to replace both of them. The LOCHIEL was lost off Whitby and the DIRK off Flamborough Head. The British records where not certain as to whether the DIRK was sunk by torpedo or struck a mine. The German records have the submarine UC-75 claiming to have sank the DIRK off Flamborough Head, but 29th (following day) as the date of loss.

28/05/1903 Aristides SV (+1903) wreck
Aristides SV (+1903)The clipper ship Aristides, Capt. Poppy, was at the time of her going into service in 1876, the flagship of the Aberdeen White Star fleet. She had a famous career as a fast clipper on the Australian run, and in addition to cargo she also carried some hundreds of passengers. Her maiden voyage was notable for the fact that she ran from London to Port Phillip, Australia, in 74 days; the fastest run she ever made. On a subsequent occasion she ran 320 miles in 24 hours. On 28th May, 1903, she left Caleta Buena, Chile, for San Francisco with a cargo of nitrate of soda. She became overdue and search was made by the British light cruiser Amphion and the naval sloop Shearwater, but without success, and she was posted missing.

28/05/1904 Helene SS [+1904] wreck
Helene SS [+1904]Messrs. R. M. Hudson, of Sunderland, on Monday received information that their steamer, the s.s. GENERAL HAVELOCK, had collided with the French steamer HELENE, off Hartlepool, on Saturday night, and that seven off the French seamen were drowned. The GENERAL HAVELOCK left the Wear on Saturday night on her usual voyage to London, with cargo and passengers. The collision occurred some two or three hours after Sunderland had been left, and it is gathered that the foreign vessel was damaged to such an extent that she went down immediately. The GENERAL HAVELOCK stood by and picked up several of the sailors belonging to the French vessel. Seven others, it appears, were drowned. The GENERAL HAVELOCK apparently sustained no very serious damage, for her skipper, Captain Stock, continued his voyage to the Thames. The HELENE was in command of Captain Teste. She was bound from Rouen to West Hartlepool with iron ore, and was a regular trader to West Hartlepool.

28/05/1905 Svyetlana (Светлана) (+1905) wreck
Svyetlana (Светлана) (+1905) BATTLE OF TSUSHIMA, May 28th 1905 The Russian cruiser Svyetlana, joined by Bystryi, was running to the north at best speed and was pursued by the Otowa and Niitaka. Both these Japanese vessels were her superior in strength and speed. It soon became clear that an action was inevitable. Commodore Shein turned Svyetlana toward the Korean coast, hoping to beach his vessel and save his crew. Svyetlana began to zigzag intending to ruin the Japanese aim. But in spite of the Russians efforts, the Japanese cruisers, joined by destroyer Murakumo, who was able to prevent Bystryi from joining the battle, closed in. By 1020 hrs Niitaka was able to reopen with her 6-inch battery and Svyetlana was soon a mass of flames and smoke. Her ammunition was running out fast, her port engine was disabled, and it was obvious to Commodore Shein that the end was near. One of her officers wrote: "The cruisers, came closer and poured in a terrific fire, every shell took effect, the whole hull trembled from the incessant explosions of bursting shell… Fires broke out; all the cartridges were expended, and in compliance with an order given earlier, the engineer opened the after valve and all the watertight doors." As the cruisers ceased fire Bystryi made her escape to the north. Niitaka, Murakumo and Otowa followed. Under this hail of shells the brave Russian crew prepared to abandon the burning ship. With admiration the official Japanese History describes her end: "Although there was nothing to be done the crew determined to die and refused to hoist the signal of surrender. Bathed in a shower of shell they waited for the ship to sink. The captain was killed, the commander mortally wounded. The ship gradually heeled over and most of the crew jumped into the sea". Svyetlana sank at Chyukpyong Bay. Bystryi unable to escape her pursuers, beached herself on the coast of Korea near Chukupen Bay. Her crew managed to get ashore and hide out in the mountains for a short time, but eventually surrendered themselves to the Japanese garrison at Chukupen signal station.

28/05/1940 Brighton Belle HMS [+1940] wreck
Brighton Belle HMS [+1940]P. & A. Campbell; 1900; J. Scott & Co; 396 tons; 200x24x8.2; 141 nhp; 17 knots; compound engines. Launched as Lady Eveleyn, she was named after the wife of a director of the Furness Railway. She was rebuilt in 1904 by Vickers Sons & Maxim at Barrow in Furness, when she was lengthened by some 30 ft and her open foredeck was plated in. She was purchased by Tuckers in 1919 and later by Campbell´s in 1922. She was renamed Brighton Belle in 1923. In 1936 she was transferred from the Bristol Channel to the South Coast, which was in more in keeping with her new name. During the war, the Brigthon Belle was adjusted for wartime: a walking bridge before the funnel and an A.A. gun. She was renamed NF-17. In 1940 she went to the Dunkirk evacuation and after picking up 800 men she struck a submerged wreck which had been mined a few hours earlier. Fortunately all the men were rescued, along with the crew and the Captain´s dog. They were picked up by the Medway Queen, who went alongside as she was sinking.
