The map sheet and quasi-administrative area assigned to this record are arbitrary, being derived from the unverified location of loss that is cited by Whittaker. The vessel may have been lost within the quasi-administrative area defined as Maritime - Orkney.

The classification cited by Whittaker remains unverified.
