Yard Number: 365

Renamed: NERE AINGERUA

The trawler BALNAGASK went aground on Urie Baa, Fair Isle on 11 October 1910. She was refloated the next day and towed back to Aberdeen by the salvage vessel OCEAN BRIDE.

After becoming NERE AINGERUA (or possibly NORA AINGUERUA), the ship was sold to Caille & Cie., Brest and renamed SAINT MATHIEU.

On January 6, 1918, the trawler, which was certainly armed and possibly in naval service, was shelled and sunk off Ile d’Yeu, Bay of Biscay by U 22.:
