Who wants to play name them?
aaaaw okay make it easy name the 2 classes of ships with the bows pointing forward on the right, next one in centre is easy also. just the class.
Anyone who can name the ships in the actual photo gets cookie or something!
The guy at front he is either called Oleg or Vladimir! (just a guess)

the trawler your on about is the CASSIO H398 built 1966, she can be seen in this photo (far left)
she sailed from hull on the 31st july 1968 to leningrad with a crew of 17 men
she was there 14 days and was visited by approxmately 35,000 visitors
the CASSIO was held in high esteem by the russians because she had been built on the clyde
after the exhibition the CASSIO was the first british trawler to experiment with a pelagic trawl == jerry (tenterden)
