In service at Lowestoft. 1964 - 1968

The only information I can find of this ship is a photograph of
A433 Universal Star.

I can find no information relating to Lowestoft in respect of this vessel
which is reputed to have been the first steel stern trawler working
out of Lowestoft.

Any information appreciated
As a rigger I worked on the Universal Star many times maintaining
her warps etc,etc.
After leaving Lowestoft I heard she was working from Great Yarmouth as a tug.
