' 100Tons 107ft loa TSMV New Prince of Wales, Sotuehnd motor navigation Co, owned and operated by Skipper A.E. Brand & Chief Engineer W.H. Wilson requisitioned for Dunkirk service and lost due to the untrained RN "scratch crew" assigned aboard, who had ignorantly topped-off the petrol/parafin fuel tanks with Diesel. This caused frequent engine-stoppages en route for Dunkirk and a final one off the La Panne beaches which gave the Germans a "static target. The young RN Sub.Lieut. Skipper P.H.E. Bennett and two of his equally young crew were saved by the MV Triton. The New Prince of Wales sank in very shallow water - just covering her main deck when she'd settled.two of her crew were killed.
