26 DEC 1956

Was the first vessel to arrive at the stricken Swedish vessel SAMBA (Captain, Carl Blomberg) which had sent out a distress call after engine failure on route from Rotterdam to Odda, West Norway. The SAMBA was approx 40 miles West of Lista South Norway, with a south easterly force 6 gale blowing and increasing the SAMBA was unable to move and drifted helplessly towards the Shetlands. The SAMBA was first spotted by an RAF Shackleton which then dropped flares to guide other vessels to her, of which 11 responded. On the 27th the CAPE MARIATO H364 managed to get a line aboard to try to tow the vessel, but with the rough seas running the tow broke, another tow was gained later in the day by the CAPE MARIATO but also broke. On the 28th the Dutch Salvage tug NORD HOLLAND made several attempts to connect a tow but all attempts also failed. The SAMBA now having drifted approx 300 miles in the South easterly gale force 10 winds was close to land and at 2pm launched a liferaft with 6 crewmen aboard, which were picked up by the NORD HOLLAND. The SAMBA was so close to the rocks of the Bard of Bressay and it was not possible to get the remainder of the crew off in safety. After some difficulty in locating the SAMBA the Lerwick Lifeboat LADY JANE AND MARTHA RYLAND ( John Sales ) which had been launched at 11.30am spotted the fires on the foredeck of the SAMBA that the crew had lit. In bad visibility and high seas the lifeboat managed to get alongside the SAMBA and each crewman jumped to the lifeboat, Capt Blomberg been the last man off the SAMBA . The lifeboat then headed to Lerwick as the SAMBA took to the rocks of Ness Sound and was wrecked.
