On 21 October 1939 the Orsa (Master Alexander Simpson) struck a mine laid on 5 September by U-15 and sank about 15 miles from Flamborough Head. The master and 15 crew members were lost. Four crew members were picked up by HMS Woolston and landed at Rosyth.

Aged 100.

Dan Brooks was drowned at Donna Nook in 1886. He was aged 22.
