June, 1914 - June 1914

Alexander Vass, 8 New Street, Shandwick, claimed £20 lose of wages against Peter Reid, skipper of the steam drifter Faithful, Vass claimed he was hired for the 1913 herring season at Lossiemouth and Yarmouth but was dismissed after Lossiemouth and therefore missed the wages for Yarmouth. Peter Reid claimed that Vass had left of his own free will and he had lost 4 days fishing while trying to replace Vass and put in a counter claim of £20 lose of earnings. When the Sheriff said he was leaning towards Reid, both claims were withdrawn and the case was dismissed.
