Collision in River Scheldt - 1925

On 9 April 1925 there was a collision between the JONGE CATHARINA and CLAN MONROE in the Wielingen off Knokke (mouth of the River Scheldt).

The Dutch ship sank within minutes with the loss of 10 lives.

The Clan Monroe suffered only minor damage.

After a juridical fight of five years the CLAN MONROE was fully held responsible for the fatal collision by the Dutch High Court.  A verdict hotly disputed by Clan Line.
