Default From Hull

Hi All,
On his trip around Flamborough Head old sudden death claimed to have sailed on a vessel named “Flying Scud”. Attempts have been made in the past to track her down using Lloyds Register of Ships, however this usually only lists larger vessels of 100 gross tons and above. As Donston’s boat had to be beached at Flamborough it would have had to have been much smaller, and whilst researching another matter I have found the existence of the “Mercantile Navy List” first published 1857. This lists ships from a quarter of a ton upwards and may therefore be more likely to contain details of the Flying Scud.
However it is not available in Hull but can be viewed at the National Archies and the Guildhall Library London. I am unable at present to spare the time to travel to London and inspect these files but if anyone else feels able to spare the time I feel it might be worthwhile.

Rgds
John
