H M Trawler "Drumoak"

Two of my Ellington Granduncles, the Skipper and the Engineman, were lost when H M Trawler "Drumoak" struck what was thought to be a British-laid mine on 05 Oct 1914 at West Hinder.

Whilst I am already aware of much of the circumstances surrounding the loss, I wonder if a photo, or details of the vessel's peacetime role, can be obtained.
