Wreck of the SS Werner Kunstmann on Goswick Sands
Wreck of the SS Werner Kunstmann on Goswick Sands
A German cargoship launched 1891, wrecked in fine weather 14 January 1913.
It seems odd to be wrecked in fine weather and LinkExternal link supplied by Tuppence suggests
'she was scuppered by her crew after they discovered her load of iron ore was to be suppled to German factories in preparations for the start of World War 1.'
