Hello,
On the 13/Feb/1917. 5 men from this trawler where drowned as a result of an attack by an enemy submarine.They are commerated on the Tower Hill Memorial but there is no report of the loss of FLEURETTE either in Lloyds War Losses or BVLS.
Could anyone shed any light on this incident please?

regards
Roger

Roger,

You will find some information here: http://www.uboat.net/forums/read.php?23,72380,72380#msg-72380

Not much though - this line of enquiry seems to have petered out - worth a look though.

Regards,

Brian

Hello Brian,
Thanks for the input.
Her correct port number was LT312. At this stage, it looks unlikely that she was the victim of U-Boat attack.

Got a job to read that Roger - does it say she was found abandoned? Could you transcribe what is on that document please as it may help enquiries.
