25 August 1916 S.T. EQUINOX GY 461
198 gt. 110.5ft. x 21.2ft. O.N. 110902
Built 1899 by Earle's S.B. & Eng. Co. at Hull for the:-
        Grimsby Union Steam Fishing Co. (William Somerville Letten)
Aug.1899 Registered Ulundi GY 461 (Gy. Union S.F. Co.)
Apr.1913 Sold to Anchor S.F.Co. renamed Catulus GY 461
Dec.1913 Sold to Grimsby & North Sea Steam Fishing Co. Ltd. -
        Grimsby, renamed Equinox GY 461
Jun.1915 Requisitioned by the Admiralty for mine sweeping and
patrol duties at Dover. Admiralty No.3353. Armament: 1 x 3 pounder.

10 August 1915:
        The "Equinox" was damaged when the German Zeppelin "L.12"
(C.O. Oberleutenant Peterson), bombed Dover Harbour by mistake.
        When "L.12" arrived off the coast between Margate and Herne Bay, Peterson believed he had been carried by strong winds well to the north of Harwich, his intended target. He turned and headed south reaching Dover soon after midnight. Believing he was now over Harwich he commenced bombing the Dover harbour area but was met at once by intense anti-aircraft gunfire and his ship was hit. Three of his twelve bombs fell on land and the rest were hurriedly dropped into the harbour to allow the Zeppelin to climb towards its ceiling, but she had sustained serious damage, losing gas, causing her to slowly descend towards the water as she headed for Zeebrugge. A few miles off there she was picked up by a German torpedo boat and towed into Ostend. At 08:30 on the 10th. Flight Commander J.R. Smyth-Pigott had taken off from Dunkirk in a B.E.2c to look for the crippled Zeppelin. He found her some three miles off Ostend being hauled down by the destroyer that had taken her in tow. He attacked with two twenty-pound bombs and six grenades from a height of 500 ft., under heavy fire from torpedo boats in the area and shore batteries. Then seeing that the raider's back was broken he turned away and returned to base. Later it was learned "L.12" was destroyed by fire while in the process of being dismantled.
        In his book "The Dover Patrol 1915-17", Admiral Bacon gave this description of the incident:- "the "Equinox" was not actually struck by a bomb, but one passed within an inch or two of the gunwale opposite the forecastle accommodation, and exploded on the surface of the water. The explosion was most violent, and wrecked the forecastle sleeping-place, where four ratings were in their bunks. Two ratings were killed outright and one dangerously wounded but afterwards recovered. The side of the vessel and the funnel were riddled with small holes."
        I have only found one naval rating who was killed, but I did come across a casualty report associated with this bombing that lists: One killed, one seriously injured and two slightly injured. I am confident these four (as listed below), are the four ratings who were in the forecastle.
        Another Grimsby trawler that served in the "Dover Patrol", the "Cleon", was anchored close to the "Equinox" in Dover Harbour, she was damaged in the bombing but didn't suffer any casualties. However she was mined and lost with all twelve hands on 1st February 1918, details of the loss are listed in the 1918 records.

August 1915:
The "Equinox" was replaced, repaired and returned to her owners. Just over a year later on 25 August 1916 while on a fishing trip, she was mined 39 miles S.E. by E. from the Humber Light Vessel, and lost with all nine hands. On the 30 September 1916 she was given up for lost, nothing having been heard of her since she was sighted on August 25, by the Grimsby trawlers "Emu" and "Eagle", and later they heard an explosion. There are no records of mines being laid by U-boats in this area before this date. It is most likely that she sank in the same minefield that accounted for some Grimsby fishing vessels in 1915 ("Dovey", "Cheshire", "Perseus", "Tors"). A map that includes the German minefields as of May 31, 1915, shows a mined area in that region which would appear to correspond to the minefield laid by "SMS Nautilus" in 1914. Nine lives lost including her Skipper.

From Hartlepool:
St. Tr. "Sutterton" brought in crew of the motor fishing boat "Jennie Bullas" sunk 2.30 p.m., 4th by German submarine. Approx. position 53.47 N., 0.33 E. Subm. was small, crew about 25, 1 small gun before C.T. slate colour, no numbers or marks. Used small sail to resemble a fishing boat. Believed to have steered North.

Master's Deposition: Bd. of Trade, M. 52567.
    On Wednesday, 4th October, 1916 the weather fine and clear and the wind in the SW. the ship was 14' ENE. of the Humber Lightship when a German submarine was observed about 1/4 mile away on the Deponent's port quarter.The submarine came straight to the Deponent and hailed him to put his small boat out, which he did, and went to the submarine. The submarine then put two men into the Deponent's small boat and all returned to the Deponents vessel. The two men afore-said then gave orders for all the crew to leave the vessel by the small boat. These two men immediately went and placed a bomb on board. They also got into the small boat which was quickly rowed away. All had reached the submarine when the explosion was heard, which blew the decks right up, and doubtless she went on fire and sank. Deponent and his crew were all placed below on the submarine.
    The Deponent and his crew were kept on board the submarine from 3.30 to 7.30 p.m. Then they were all transferred to the steamer Gustaf of Sweden. . . .

5th November 1916.
        In the early hours of Sunday morning, at the height of a terrific north-easterly gale the minesweeper "Knot" was driven on to the rocks near North Carr Beacon, at the mouth of the Firth of Forth. The violence of the stranding triggered an explosion in the ship's magazine, killing two of the crew, and another was washed overboard and drowned.
        Distress signals were first observed by the coast-guard at Fifeness. The Crail Lifeboat was speedily launched and soon reached the wreck, the crew of which were burning a blanket soaked in paraffin oil, having used all available rockets. Some of the lifeboat crew boarded the vessel as heavy seas washed over her and rescued ten survivors who were sheltering in the wheelhouse. The skipper stated it was the darkest night he had ever experienced.
        On reaching the lifeboat station at Fifeness it was found one of the men was quite exhausted and he was stretchered to a nearby farm and a doctor from Crail was sent for. Later that morning the men were taken to Rosyth. By that time the vessel was completely submerged, with only one of the masts being visible. Two of the men killed were from the North of Scotland, while the other was an Englishman.
