  History  
 
Vleggeert Nico05/10/2008Shortly after midnight on 4 March, the French steam merchant S.N.A. 1 (2679 grt), en route from Ardrossan to Rouen, collided with Thurston about 60 miles south of Milford Haven and sank in 50°33N/05°47W. 31 crew members were rescued by Thurston, but only two men survived the second sinking by rescuing themselves into an overturned lifeboat. They rightened it, but one of the men died of exposure before a fishing trawler found the last survivor after about 11 hours and brought him to a hospital where he had to stay for a week.
