Thanks to NHP651.

The two trawlers were later sold to a fishing company of Gravelines, based Boulogne sur mer, renamed LE TEMPLIER and LE CROISE and later sold to an unknown buyer.

I try to find photos of these trawlers during their Lowestoft lifes and during their lifes after their french lifes.

Are they sister ships to the Boston Hornet which used to be here in Holyhead?
