Viknor, the one time Tyne tourist steamer, Viking, which has been lost off the coast of Ireland, her fate will for ever be enshrouded in mystery. It seems certain that there were 300 or more men on board the vessel, including a large proportion of North Country hands, all of whom have perished. At the time of the disaster the Viknor was an armed merchantman."
