Het Noorse schip Nyland. Bron Fyne Pioneer
De familie van Brienen woonde Berkenstraat 12 te IJmuiden (adresboek Velsen 1940). Moeder was in 1935 overleden. Vader overleed 6 december 1940. Hun zoon Joop van Brienen is omgekomen bij de politionele acties in Indië.
Having made some voyages around the U.K., Nyland left Methil for Oban in Convoy EN 35 on Dec. 2-1940 in order to join Convoy OB 255, which originated in Liverpool on Dec. 7 (external links - her destination is given as British Guinea; according to Page 2, she was bound for Mackenzie River, Canada). EN 35 arrived Oban on Dec. 6, however, Nyland never reached Oban (Colombia, Mathilda and Spero are also named in this convoy). Terrible weather was encountered and many ships sought refuge. After an S.O.S. had been received saying that she had run aground on West Rock, Isle of Iona on Dec. 6 and wasabout to break up, a tug was sent out to assist, but no trace of her nor her crew was found.Charles Hocking says Nyland (voyage from the Tyne to Mackenzie) had last been sighted by the Norwegian Marga off Skerryvore on Dec. 5*, and adds that a piece of wreckage bearing her name was found 2 weeks later. A visitor to my website has told me that "Shipwreck Index of the British Isles" says basically the same thing, adding that the wreckage was found at Torran Rocks.Voor een lijst van bemanningsleden zie de website:http://www.warsailors.com/singleships/nyland.html
