Type Note


The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative. Ridley lists this wreck among those 'off Cunningsburgh District, South Mainland' and among others on the E side of the islands. A location on the North Sea coast appears more probable, and Sand of Meal is probably to be equated with Sands of Mail.

Whittaker cites a [presumably suggested] location at N60 2 W1 13.5 [HU 431 278], which falls within the area of Mail.

Sand of Meal is not noted as such on the 1998 edition of the OS 1:50,000 map but the name has otherwise been applied to locations around HU 37 35.
