I hope you get the facts right about the boats owned by the Jack Breach Ltd. company. I understand they were not owned by Breach but by partnerships of which the Spashetts were large shareholders! That applies to
three other companies, these being Pevensey Castle Ltd., Explorator Ltd. and Kittiwake Ltd. I understand you can find out the truth about these companies from Companies House in Cardiff.

treeve
13th January 2008, 23:10
Thanks ... I have full particulars, in relation to the various partnerships.
I also have definitions as to ownerships and shareholders. I am keeping
specifically to the companies named on my index page.
If anyone wishes to "challenge" these or add to the information database,
I will be pleased to add that/correct that. Best Wishes, Raymond

Raymond, I do not think that anyone wishes to "challenge"your efforts. In this research business new leads are cropping up all the time and I know from experience that some company records are not quite as straight forward as even some of those who purport to have the inside track would have you believe. Every lead, correction and addition gratefully received.

LOWESTOFT RECORDS

Anybody requiring information about Lowestoft fishing vessels and ships built there should contact the following:

Suffolk County Council
Lowestoft Record Office
Lowestoft Central Library
16 Clapham Road
Lowestoft
NR32 1DR

Telephone: 01502 405357 (Searchroom)

They over 14,000 photographs of Lowestoft ships there and thousands of records of fishing and other vessels.

The staff provide an excellent service and details of owning companies including share ownership. The many fishing company official records come up with some surprises!

Information and photographs of all vessels mentioned on this thread are available from Lowestoft Record Office, in fact the details posted about the steam drifter Go Ahead appears to have been copied from information held there or is very similiar. Lowestoft fishing vessels are very easy to research thanks to many years hard work by the Port of Lowestoft Research Sociery members.

As Gil mentions, new information and data is being discovered all the time, the more you look the more you find, often in unexpected places.

treeve
14th January 2008, 12:22
I am always glad to hear of any corrections needed, or updates.
The pages on the Breach interest vessels were all researched by
Roy Breach, and I know he has been diligent and has seen many
original records, over years of research, much of which was from
his own family records. Best Wishes, Raymond

14th January 2008, 17:22

Thanks very much for such indepth information, my grandfather sailed on her between 1921 and 1923. Hope you manage to get all the information you need to complete your Breach Fleet pages.

Roy (grandson of JV Breach) has made some considerable research
over the years, including that from his family's archives, travelled
the country and collected a great deal of information. I have an interest
in the fishing vessels of Lowestoft and Grimsby; he did not have a
suitable outlet for his research and so he has given all of his research
material to me, and I am re-writing it in narrative form to be able to
prepare web pages for him. I hope to be able to do justice to his work
and his family. Best Wishes, Raymond

There is a good photo of the Ouse LT572 in David Butcher book "Trawlermen"
page 62 it is a stern shot showing her in dock at Lowestoft and also mentioned in chapter 7 by her one time skipper George Stock. As matter of interest also in the photo is the Provider LT 42 built for my Gt Grandfather
William Burrell of Gt Yarmouth as the YH999. He built steam engines in Southtown next door to the Shipyard (Fellows) but went all the way to Devon
to have her built (Robert Cox & Sons) she was towed to Yarmouth to have her engine fitted as was her sister ship Kipper YH385 sold to Lowestoft as the
LT1111 IN 1912.

Thanks Gil for imfo it was generally assumed she had been scrapped in Holland
in 1938 as did a lot of British boats why was she spared ?. Maybe because she was a steel boat. When Burrells closed in 1994 the Yarmouth Mercury
had a article on the firm and the KIPPER was mentioned along with the
rumour she was renamed PAX, Dolfien and Zeehaan. I dont think my
Gt Grandfather William Burrell would have been too happy about her war work.
I wonder whether any of our Dutch members have any futher imfo on her
during her long Dutch career

Yarmouth Information - steam drifter Kipper

Following the recent notes concerning the steam drifter Kipper, I have checked the local Great Yarmouth records, the 1911 Olsens, and Les Hawkins Directory of Yarmouth steam drifters and in all of these she has the registration YH385. It would be interesting to know if these sources are correct or not. Her 30 nhp engine cylinders are recorded as being 12 & 25 x 16.

When the Kipper was built in 1908 for my Gt Grandfather William Burrell of
Gt Yarmouth she was YH385. There was a picture of her in The Yarmouth
Mercury when they ran a article on the demise of Burrells in 1994. She is
shown tied up at North Quay. I would love to get a copy of the photo as
it is the only one I have seen of her as the YH385. She was fitted out at
Yarmouth having being towed from Appledore where she was built.
Her engine was a Burrell steam surface condencing compound (2 cylinders)
12" & 25" dia, both with a 16" stroke rated at 30hp (140 I.H.P).
For the larger vessels they produced a straight triple expansion with cylinders
10", 17" & 28" all with a 18" stroke they where rated at 50hp (300 I.H.P.)
and fitted in such vessels as, LORD SUFFOLK LT44, LORD COLLINGWOOD LT183/ LT 34, LORD KEITH LT181, LORD ST VINCENT LT79 all part of the
Lowestoft Steam Herring Drifter CO LTD fleet. The LORD HOOD LT20//LT55
THE 1952 Prunier trophy winner with a record 314.75 Crans of herring was
powered by a Crabtree 200IHP triple. There works at GY where next door to

You have indicated that Lord Hood was LT20//LT55. I was under the impression the Lord Hood was LT20 and previously LT215, certainly all the photographs I have of that vessel show her as LT20 or LT215. I was on the market when she came in with her large haul in 1952, escorted by Golden Miller. LT55 was Lord Barham, a drifter I have been on many times.

The full details of all the LSHD vessels are well documented.

You are quite right a slip of the finger. LT 55 was Lord Barham I notice she was formerly LT211 & GDY110 Arkadiuz. The Lord Hood was also GDY108
Antonieuz what was there Polish connection about ?.Another L.S.H.D. boat
I am interested in is the Lord St Vincent LT79 she was mined and sunk in the Thames estuary on the 7th July 1941 does anybody now exactly where she
was sunk. Also what records are available for the L.S.H.D.CO LTD fleet.
I believe the company is still trading as L.H.D.Marine supplies Ltd.

LT55 was Lord Barham, a drifter my grandad skippered during WW2 and took to Dunkirk. Would you know where I could find a picture of the Lord Barham. I only have one of some my grandad Jim Masterton on deck during or immideatly after the Dunkirk evacuation.

Can you please advise where I can acces the full details of LT vessels to assist with my search.

Kind Regards

David
