1318 wreck of English cargo vessel which stranded on the Gunfleet Sand, bound from London for Newcastle-upon-Tyne and ultimately for Berwick-upon-Tweed with victuals (wheat, "bacon-pigs" and provisions in barrels) and iron and steel for Berwick Castle (4154). At the time the Castle was under siege from the Scottish forces which had occupied the town in April 1318. In late June 1318, after an 11-week siege, the Castle surrendered. Constructed of wood, LA TRINITE was a sailing vessel.
