Fact File

07 March 1944 the Limeslade along with the War Grey and Louis Botha grounded in fog off Iceland, she was later refloated and returned to Hull

In the matter of a Formal Investigetion held at The Guildhall, Hull on the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th days of August, 1944 before R.F. Hayward, Esq., K.C., assisted by Captain Piers de Legh, Captain J.W. Grimston, R.D., R.N.R., (Retd.) and G. Robb, Esq., into the circumstances attending the stranding of the steam trawler "LIMESLADE" at Veidios in Medalland Bugt, Iceland on the 7th March, 1944.

The Court having carefully inquired into the circumstances attending the above-mentioned shipping casualty, finds that the stranding was caused by the faulty navigation of the trawler "WAR GREY", the appointed leader of the section, and the failure of the skipper of the "LIMESLADE", Alexander Stoners, to take soundings.

The Court suspends the certificate of competency as skipper of Alexander Stoners for six calendar months from this date.
