CREWMEN
TAYLOR HERBERT 47 BANYERS H255 . Spare Hand 21 Dec 1957 Lost Overboard off Iceland
. . . 5 Kingston Villas . At the time of the loss of Herbert Taylor there was a moderate sea running and the vessel was not shipping much water, no one saw Herbert go overboard but on the discovery that he was missing an all stations call was put out and all vessels in the vicinity where notified, the Banyers went back on her tow path and searched for hours to no avail. The water was freezing and a man would have had little chance of survival.
