The SS Ellan Vannin sinks in stormy weather, killing all 36 passengers and crew aboard, whilst bound for Liverpool, UK, from The Isle of Man. The story of the disaster will inspire the 1965 song The Ellan Vannin Tragedy by Liverpudlian folk group The Spinners. Ellan Vannin is the Manx-language name for the Isle of Man, and there is a much older song, Ellan Vannin, which was written many years before the disaster and is now considered the unofficial anthem of the Isle Of Man.
