      John Knox was a Marine Salvage Engineer living in Newcastle during WW1. On one occasion a sailing vessel with wheat for Ipswich hit a mine outside Harwich. They got her up to Ipswich and John Knox came down from the Tyne to supervise the fixing of a temporary patch, so that the ship could be taken away to be repaired. He visited his relatives in Ipswich and told AAM that he was able to row into the ship's hold through the hole in her side. (HWM)
