No a guard vessel - that was terrible as well.
Just found it.
She was called the Meridian and was lost with all 4 crew. She was built in the 70s and was a capable ship. She had carried out guard duties before for up to 17 days including Winter operations. They don't really know what caused her to sink. Probably a capsize but what caused that is unknown. It was at least a Force 9 but she had handled far worse.
Despite a massive search she was never found.
