  History  
 
Eekelers Dirk25/01/2006The Zor, of Istanbul, carrying a cargo of timber started listing on 18th May 1955, after her cargo shifted in the bad weather. The Wells lifeboat, Cecil Paine, rescued several of the crew, but four men decided to stay. On the 19th, a northerly gale was blowing and Coxswain Henry Downtide West asked the captain to abandon ship but he refused. Less than ten minutes after the crew and her captain had been rescued the Zor slowly began to sink.
