Fate : 30th Dec 1936 Wrecked Ona Island Norway lost without trace

 

Homeward bound from Bear Island the Admiral Collingwood was one of Hull`s newest trawlers, the Admiral Collingwood wished to be back in Hull on sunday 3rd Jan for the market on monday. this was relayed in a wireless message to his wife from the skipper. This would be the last message that would be heared from the Admiral Collingwood, at the time she was battling hurricane conditions. By sunday the Collingwood had not contacted the owners or turned up as expected. The belief was she had taken shelter and was awaiting better conditions to proceed. On monday another Hull trawler the Conan Doyle arrived back, this gave great concern for the Collingwoods safety as the Conan Doyle had been fishing 400 miles further away than the Admiral Collingwood. On that monday evening the BBC broadcast it`s first ever message of the kind asking all vessels from Statland Norway to the Humber to look out for the Admiral Collingwood. The first sign that anything untoward had happened to the vessel came on the 5th Jan when a lifeboat without a name and various wreckage, including a lifebelt marked " S.T Admiral Collingwood Hull " was found at Ona Island on the Norwegian Coast. The owners stated that they had not abandoned hope that the vessel was safe, she will weather pretty much anything that comes along and is commanded by a man with years of experience. In many of the families homes christmas presents remained unopened. 06 Jan 1937 Skipper B Sigurdsson of the Hull trawler BUNSEN reported in Hull that he had last heared the missing vessel Admiral Collingwood speaking to another vessel over the radio approximately a week previously on Wed 30th Dec. the Admiral Collingwood was believed to be aproaching the Norwegian coast in very severe weather. The Skipper of the Hull trawler DROMIO that had set out with the Admiral Collinwood also stated on his return that he had kept up radio contact untill Wednesday 30th. Were he heared nothing further, nothing further was ever heared from the Admiral Collingwood and the only clue to her fate was the increasing wreckage washed ashore close to Ona Island Norway.
