In November 1907 a bottle was picked up at Frieston Shore which contained a sad note that read as follows.
"We are shipwrecked in the North Sea. Who finds this bottle send it to the nearest station for help. Mercy, we are starving (shipwrecked off the trawler Grecian)."
The steam trawler Grecian was launched in 1900 for The Boston Steam Fishing Co. Ltd. as "Grecian" (BN87) and in 1902 was sold to The Boston Deep Sea Fishing & Ice Co. Ltd., Boston. On the 17th. of December 1903 she left Boston for the North Sea fishing grounds and was last seen 265 miles north easterly from Inner Dowsing Lightship by another Boston trawler "Sutterton" (BN39). The Grecian was lost with all hands. The crew were:
G.A. Woods (skipper)
SOME COINS AND TOKENS.
A Peacock 3d token.
A 1666 Boston Farthing token.
