GENA

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of 1917 wreck of English cargo vessel, located approximately 5.4 miles east of Thorpe Ness. The GENA foundered in a position cited at the time as '0.75 mile S x W 0.5 W of the War Channel "A" Buoy off Southwold, after being torpedoed in an aerial attack on her passage from the Tyne with coal, and has been securely recorded in that position since the date of loss. Two days previously the GENA had escaped from an attack which sank the VICTORIA, with which she was in company, off Scarborough (account of wreck event, 1457203; possible remains, 909168). Constructed of steel in 1893, the GENA was a screw-driven steamer.
