“Amazing night at Larne – Wholesale gun-running — Thousands of rifles landed — Three-and-a-half million cartidges – Motors from far and near – Astounding achievement — Special To Telegraph”.
The weapons on board the Clyde Valley began their journey on a different ship, the Fanny. However, Fanny’s papers were siezed by Danish authorities, as they thought the weapons were destined for home-rulers in Iceland! The ship escaped in bad weather and Clyde Valley sailed from Glasgow to the Irish sea off Wexford where it met Fanny, took the materiel on board, and temporarily renamed itself Mountjoy II using canvas sheets. From there, it sailed to Larne and then Bangor, off-loading weapons in both places for use by the Ulster Volunteers.
