I was 3rd mate on the Victoria City 2 when she sank off the island of Ameland. No loss of life. We were outward bound from Hamburg at the start of voyage no. 5. I joined the Victoria City in the shipyard of William Docksford and after an uneventful 4 voyages we were in collision with an Italian liberty ship.We were struck on the port side and sank within 20 minutes.The mate on watch was D L G Jones.
