§ Sir D. Thomson
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many vessels have been wrecked since 1920 on the coast between Girdleness and Buchanness lighthouses; and how many of the wrecked vessels were on passage to Aberdeen?
Between the years 1920 and 1927, six vessels were totally lost as the result of stranding on the coast between Girdleness and Buchanness lighthouses. The records now available do 1127W not indicate how many of these vessels were on passage to Aberdeen. Since 1927, nine vessels have been totally lost as the result of stranding in this area; of these, five vessels are known to have been on passage to Aberdeen.
