Solway Harvester; HBOS

The Solway Harvester

In 1990, the Scottish fishing boat the Antares was sunk by a hunter-killer submarine.

The Royal Navy attempted to cover up the incident by denying that its boat was involved and was slow to admit blame. (No need for secrecy on the open seas. )

D Mills - died on the Solway Harvester.

11 January 2000 - The Solway Harvester sank in the Irish Sea.

12 January 2000 - Trident submarine HMS Vigilant returned to Faslane on the Clyde with damage to its periscope.

22 January 2000 - Daily Record reported theory that sub collided with Harvester and holed its hull.

Solway Harvester sinking ruled an accident.

Sir Peter Burt, formerly of the Bank of Scotland, and Sir George Mathewson, ex-head of the Royal Bank of Scotland, say they should be appointed to lead HBOS. (
