During the severe gale of 16th December 1910, four Brixham smacks; Eva, Speedwell, Marjorie, and Vigilance were lost in the Bristol Channel, while two hands from the smack Friendship were drowned. In response to an appeal by the local Relief Committee, contributions were sent from members of the London Devonian Association and a record presented in the Association's 1912 yearbook. This copy of the rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from one held in the University of Toronto Library collection that can be downloaded from Google Books with a search by either author or title, and also from the Internet Archive.
