Clue: Vessels with medical facilities leaving wet cargo at sea (5)
Solution: EWERS

Vessels = EWERS, I think. I can't parse the whole clue though.
Any help would be much appreciated.

nearest I can muster is ...

[W]ith + ERS [Emergency rooms]

but still leaves an 'e'

Do you know for sure that EWERS was the correct answer?

Thanks for the replies, mamya and rossim.

There are 2 sets of clues in THE SUNDAY CRUSADER AND HIS SQUIRE, and they lead to the same answers.
In The Squire's clues (quick clues), the equivalent clue, 26ac, is "Pitchers (5)".

Yesterday, the online site which gives answers to the SUNDAY EXPRESS crosswords,
http://www.brital.talktalk.net/crosswords.htm
gave EWERS as the solution.
Unfortunately, yesterday's solutions to this crossword are not shown today!

Extending your ideas, mamya, maybe:

w(with) ER(Emergency Room) leaving(departing from) e(wet cargo, or what w/t carries) at (in front of) s(sea).

The other clues were all rather devious too!
