14.06.1917 Fishing about 35 miles east of May Island Firth of Forth, when she was attacked by submarine at 2,000 yards. It was ten o'clock at night, and the trawler, after the third round, secured her fishing gear and returned the fire. The enemy was evidently surprised, for after the trawler had fired three shells the German broke off the engagement and submerged, but with his fourth and fifth rounds he had hit the trawler killing two and wounding another couple. Those killed:- C.H. Mitchell & J. T. Peters both deckhands.
