evening all. can anyone help?
I've got a friend whose grandfather was master of an Everard vessel mv Wanda. She thinks it was lost with all hands, in 1923, either in the Wash or on the Goodwin Sands.
What's the best way to find out?

Many thanks for that Awateah2. It will mean a lot to my colleague at work.She often wondered about the events that killed her grandfather. She was told that he was the skipper - surname of Constant.
