SIR FRANCIS

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  129102, PUNCH UP
DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of 1917 wreck of English collier, located approximately 4 miles SE of Ravenscar, and positively identified as the SIR FRANCIS from her maker's plate and associated finds. The SIR FRANCIS foundered in a position given at the time as "2 miles NE of Scarborough" after being torpedoed en route from London to the River Tyne, in ballast (it may be that the reference is to the ship's position at the moment she was struck, since the position in which she lies is approximately 5 miles north of Scarborough). Constructed of steel in 1910, she was a screw-driven steamer.
