Found July 1914.

In a bottle:

Angus–all hands–mutiny–collision with foreign barque.

The handwriting was identified as belonging to the second engineer of disappeared Hull trawler the Angus by his landlady, who produced letters from him as evidence. The landlady thought the note to be genuine, but could not explain the word “mutiny” as the crew were “very friendly”.

[Aberdeen Journal, 11 July 1914]
