Evening David, ref; your query about Lifeboats, there was no Lifeboat in Leith or Granton, pre 1939 the nearest station would have been Dunbar or on the Fife coast at Anstruther; I noted your request for information about the Margaret Paton and suggest you try...http://www.grantontrawlers.com/
otherwise get back to me and I shall endeavour to help. What other Granton trawlers was your Uncle involved with.
