Looking from my window towards Albert DK in Hull I can see the bridge and gantry of a stern trawler on the landing berth. I cannot see her fishing number but across the side of the bridge she has the letters/ no written V3JR3. Any body any ideas please, its been a long time since a foreign treawler landed here. Cheers Jan.(Thumb)

I think my friends father in law may have been in her as cook (in the 60s/70s) his name was Arthur Reddinpenny ( think thats how you spell it) he was from down St Georges Rd Hull, I meet him in Edmonton Canada as he had immigrated there
All the best
