David Wilson, the first mate on the Britannia IIII, alleged that the helm of the Bear was put starboard to cross the bow of the Leith steamer, yet two survivors from the Bear asserted that by blowing the whistle, they gave the Britannia IIII warning that they were going starboard. By all accounts, on sighting each other, it appears that Britannia IIII gave one single blast of her whistle to warn the Bear to port, while the latter gave two blasts indicating the Britannia IIII to steer to starboard, but it resulted in a huge amount of confusion between both crews, leading, it would seem, to the collision. The Britannia IIII had her bows stove in and water began to pour into the vessel, so the officers sent out distress signals, firing a number of rockets. Two vessels passed by without offering assistance, but the Carron Company steamer Thames of Grangemouth, which was en route to London, came to her aid. As it was clear that the Britannia IIII was in poor condition, the 45 passengers were immediately transferred to the Thames, unfortunately without their effects. A hawser was quickly passed between the two ships and the Britannia IIII was towed slowly stern-foremost up the Firth, her crew remaining on board.
