Lot Essay

The wooden topsail schooner Valborg was built by Gylding & Lindtner at Veile (Denmark) in 1877. First registered at 140 tons gross (133 net), she measured 90½ feet in length with a 20½ foot beam and spent most of her working life as a North Sea and Baltic trader. Still afloat in 1914, she became a casualty of war when she was sunk by a German submarine on 26th October 1916 off Bougie (North Africa) whilst on passage from Chatham (New Brunswick, Canada) to Tunis carrying timber.
