Adour no casualties of the 21 crew. Capt. V. Teygeman. Can not help you with the time though.
From Bruges I could only found she was intercepted in the early morning and after taking over the crew, provisions and an alive pig.. she was sunk.
Alex van Opstal 17.55 hrs. Ordered abandon ship 18.05 hrs. All survivors picked up by Greek Atlanticos shortly before 19.00 hrs when vessel still afloat but forepart already under water. Around 20.00 hrs a RN trawler arrived with a doctor to help the wounded. After that all went on board the trawler which brought them to Weymouth. Crew 49 and 8 passengers. No dead but 7 crew and 2 passengers wounded.
