Did she run short of fuel that night?

That's a rather flippant remark Anon. Everyone knows how it ended up where she was.

Yes, she did run out of fuel.

Rumour from a man who worked in Granton docks at the time of this disaster was that "she" did not take on sufficient fuel supplies in Granton to allow "her" to reach anywhere near her supposed destination.
