Joan Margaret

Hob Uid: 1550797
Location :
North East Lincolnshire
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : TA3189009660
Summary : 1941 wreck of English drifter which foundered off the Clee Ness light float after being mined in the Humber, apparently while on Admiralty service as part of a Government fishing fleet, i.e. continuing to fish in the national service, rather than undertaking special war duties. She was a motor vessel, whose small size suggests wooden construction. For the site formerly quoted as the possible remains of the JOAN MARGARET, please see 907834. The names of those killed are inscribed on the Mercantile Marine Memorial, Tower Hill, London (1375500), while a number of the crew were buried in St. Oswald's Churchyard (81395) in their home town of Filey.
More information : Date of loss given as 20-MAR-1941, position of loss quoted as Cleeness Lightship [sic], River Humber. Drifter of 25 tons gross, said to be owned by the Royal Navy. (1)
