About this work
"SS Joseph & Sarah Miles (LO175) was a ‘mission ship’, constructed for the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen (Fishermen's Mission) and operated from 1902 until 1930. She acted as a hospital ship during the Dogger Bank incident (also known as the Russian Outrage) on the night of 21/22 October 1904, when the Russian Baltic Fleet mistook a British trawler fleet for the Imperial Japanese Navy and fired on them in the North Sea."--Wikipedia
