Hi Paul and welcome to SN; I am in the midst of putting together details of the Sleight Fleet; I have a little online, so far, about the family and business. Which ships was your grandfather on? You are so lucky to have the original records in your family. Best Wishes, Raymond

names, build dates and tonnage of this fleet.I can update a copy if you wish.

Paul, "Tokio" was owned by Taylors. There is a photo of her in the gallery and also a couple of sad ones of her being broken up at Grimsby.

Paul,
H. L. Taylor's had three Tokio's......GY 157 was built in 1906 and scrapped in 1948 and I would guess that this is the one you are after.
GY 167 was the ex-WILLIAM BRADY, 1918 and renamed Tokio in 1951, scrapped in 1961.
The final Tokio was a diesel trawler built in 1961 and was scrapped here in GY last year.

Hi All ,
New today so forgive me if I post in the wrong place or something.


I have been trying to find information on my grandfather ( John Frank Clark) , proving to be a challenge as running out of folk to ask questions of and those still here have very limited information or none ,however I have just received all the official paper work to find his naval information sent to me by an aunt as my uncle was starting the process late last year and has now passed on ,what i did find in all this documentation was the reference in a letter saying he had served on HMS Retako in group 105 minesweepers.
There is some info out there on the web as detailed below.

my question is has anyone additional information,crew list ,photo or general information?

RETAKO GY253 O.N.136990 also served in WW1.
She had Admiralty Number 1608 and was taken into service in April 1915 until released in 1919.
She was armed with a 12-pounder gun during that time.
I believe Grimsby Central Library have some photographs of RETAKO.
There may also have some newspaper cuttings about her fishing career.

You could request his service record from the navy that would give postings ranks attained and service periods.

Some interesting co-incidences for me in this thread. I sailed with a superb Master called Gordon Sleight and he hailed from Grimsby, he held FG Fishing tickets as well as Master FG and I recall he served on Ross Trawlers during the cod war. I sailed with him for about three years as Mate during the 70's. A pleasure to sail with, never a dull moment. Any connection I wonder?

regards
Dave
