2) OTHER / UNKNOWN CAUSES:

FEBRUARY 1945

According to Roskill, 2 ships were lost (941 grt). He apparently made an error here as the cable ship Alert sunk by Seehund midget is of 941 grt (a single ship).

That is my opinion, could you support it (by Lloyd's War Losses / other info)?

MARCH 1945

5 ships (6 095 grt) should have been lost because of the so called other causes.

Not mentioning Taber Park, Newlands and Jim, does the Lloyd's War Losses indicate somehow which the other 2 vessels (828 grt) could be? Roskill counts into this category usually e. g. capture, coastal artillery, unknown fate (probably a war loss), rocket attack etc.

JULY 1945

1 ship (27 grt) is listed as lost because of such causes. It is probably the Belgian F/V B.65 (27 grt). She left the port on 30 July 1945 and was never heard from again (possibly a mine).




ADDITIONAL QUESTION:

JUNE 1944

4 ships (10 735 grt) were lost due to other causes. Known to me are Sambut (7 219 grt), Dunvegan Head (638 grt), and Empire Lough (2 824 grt). I do not know the identity of the fourth vessel of 54 tons, maybe there she is in the Lloyd's War Losses. Could you have a look?

Why this question? I know about the British tug Tid 33 of 54 tons lost in June 1944 but it apparently sank in storm, so it is strange for me Roskill would consider this particular ship.

Thank you in advance!
