Hi Allan
My grandfather, Bob Thomson from Westray, was an AB on the Orkney Trader from 7 December 1953 until 4 February 1954. I remember my grandmother moving into Stromness during that time. I have his Discharge Book which records that employment. He had taken a winter off from working on the Risden Beasley salvage vessel 'Lifeline' which was his normal employment at that time. - (1944 - 1958)

At the time that the Islandmagee was lost the Tay Sand Co. shipped quite a considerable amount of sand and gravel to land at Leith. The sand was grabbed off the Middle Bank which runs up the Tay Estuary from Tayport right through to Newburgh. For a sea voyage the hatches were supposed to be put on and secured, but when sand was landed locally in the Earl Grey Dock this procedure was never followed. Often chances were taken once a full load had been dredged to get to Leith without closing the hatch, on this occasion bad weather was encountered, the hatch was open, and that was that!
