Thanks


Pierre

She was broken up in 1999 as Polar Trawl.

I was onboard her in 1984.

Dear Nicolina
In 1972/1973 I served at the Island Command Faeroes as executive for rescue operations. In spring 1973 a french trawler named "Le Wimereux" was on fire 60 nm east of the islands. We managed to stop the fire and get the ship into the port of Thorshavn to finish up the firefighting and search for three sailors lost during the accident.

I am wondering if it is the same ship You refer to in Your catalogue. If it is so, I am looking for some information of the incident

Yours sencerely
