  • Short Summary

    Wreck in Thames watched by people on the shore, people aboard the capsized ship.

  • Description

    Thames, Grays, Essex.

    Newspaper cutting states the crew of a barge rescued three men clinging to the rigging of HMS Worcester as she sank. The Worcester heeled over when her ballast shifted, and had been launched as the Royal Sovereign 115 years ago.
