Shannon Wreck Washed Ashore

A large portion of the Shannon, the Skegness sailing boat, in which a number of London excursionists lost their lives during last summer, has been washed ashore at Skegness, nearly opposite the spot where she went down.

There is no doubt that the boat was broken up by the recent gales.
