Lost on the 22/08/1932. While outward bound for the fishing grounds, the trawler was sunk off Spurn in a collision with the Danish steamship Thyra in fog. By making a rope fast to the Thyra, the crew of nine fishermen were able to climb safely aboard the Danish ship. Three. of the crew, Skipper Alfred Moore, mate John Clark and third hand George Clark, returned to the Ladas with canvas and sacking in the hope of plugging in the hole, but the attempt was abandoned when they discovered the water had reached the decks.
