On her final voyage, in mid-November 1888, the Shadwan took on a full cargo of wheat, barley and flour at Fiume (later to become Rijeka, Yugoslavia’s largest port) for passage to Leith. The weather remained pleasant until she was approaching Berwick, when a violent northeasterly gale developed. Huge, eight-metre breaking waves pounded the ship and Captain Willis must have known he would have trouble reaching the shelter of the Firth of Forth. On Wednesday, 28 November 1888, the red-funnelled steamer was driven into shallow water, dismasted and lying beam ends to the sea, when her flag of distress was seen off Berwick. The steam trawler Sir George Elliot went to her assistance and a steamship travelling south also bore down on her. The crew of the stricken ship were observed on deck. It was intended, if possible, to take her to the Tyne, but she foundered. Local newspapers claimed that the crew were rescued and the stricken ship then plundered. The Shadwan (Official No.77013) was an iron-hulled 1,538-ton schooner-rigged steam cargo ship that measured 78. 02 m in length, with a 10.05-m beam and a 7.01-m draught. C. S. Swan and Co. at Wallsend-on-Tyne built and completed her as Yard No.31 in August 1877 for Watson and Pigg of London, with Captain Kennedy the master. The single iron screw was powered by a 150-nhp, two-cylinder compound steam engine that used one boiler. The cylinders measured: 78. 74 cm and 147.32 cm, with a 76.2 cm-stroke (31 in. and 58 in. with a 36-in. stroke). T. Clark manufactured the engine and ancillary machinery at Newcastle. She had one deck, five bulkheads, water ballast and an amidships bridge deck. On 20 May 1879, the Shadwan had arrived at Plymouth with a cargo of maize from Sulina and at 0600 hrs on the 22nd she was involved in an incident and grounded in the Channel outside the Great Western Docks, at supposedly high water.
