ss Stokesley

SS Stokesley, built Verschure & Co, Amsterdam (?), 1,149 grt, owned by JT Duncan Shipping Co. of Cardiff.

On 24th April 1940, en route from Antwerp to London (possibly grain cargo) she was sunk after hitting a mine in the Thames Estuary. Fourteen of the eighteen crew and the Thames Pilot were lost.

Has anyone got any more information about this ship and any chance of a photo?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
