  • Notes 
    • In 1832 the sloop "Robert" was upset by a squall on its way from Dundee to London and sunk off the Dudgeon floating Light. The Captain Joseph Swankie was drowned but his young brother in law David Whitton survived and was rescued

      In 1935 whilst the "Industrian" was being built at Garland and Horsburghs yard in Dundee several boys thought that they would explore the vessel. David fell into the hold and was so badly injured he died the following morning
