A very good friend and shipmate of mine was " Rickie Ward " Ex Brocks .
I was an usher at his wedding in Fleetwood .
We sailed on a couple of trips deep sea ; the last was on Markhor ( Rickie was 4th I was 3rd Engineer at that time)
His father owned Wards Trawlers ; a fine man . Rickey died prematurely of cancer just a short while after he was married .
I have a plate with a picture of all the Wedding Group which he had made in Japan ; I should try to scan it and post it .

Hello,
Trawled through the lists but cannot identify a LOCHNELL CASTLE. Do you have any idea of her size and Official number? Fishing from Fleetwood around that time were the two Bremen built trawlers LOCH LAOI O/N 302381 LT332, and her sister LOCH LORGAN O/N 302383 LT335.

Hello Trev,
Try a mail to the people at Fleetwood Martime Heritage Trust administrator@marine-heritage.info they may be able to help you.

If you get no joy, there are three logbooks in TNA for 1948, 1949 and 1950 for O/N182178 which should tell you here port number for those years. If you can wait a while I'll look it up next time I am there or you can order direct to your computer via their Digital Express service.

regards
Roger

Pygmalion & Lochnell Castle

Information regarding Pygmalion can be found at http://www.fleetwood-trawlers.info/pygmalion.html

Lochnell Castle was registered as FD250 and I have her as a MFV but no further information.

Fleetwood trawler/2nd WW bomb

Recently read in the Daily Express about a Fleetwood trawler catching 2nd WW bomb (4000 lb) around 50 years ago. Nothing else was mentioned regarding where or what her name was, anyone any information?
