I've just joined the forum and am looking for information on a couple of trawlers which operated from Grimsby, before and during WWII. The first is the Wigmore which was sank by a U boat in 1939 off Peterhead, on which my Great Grandfather was a deckhand (Dumbleton). The second is we believe called the Scottish and was a trawler converted to be a minesweeper during WWII.
