Happy days.
thanks again.

Me dad was really good mates with Bob Palmer, Kit Jamieson Freddie Howes & loads more incl. Ernie Williams & Ernie Longhorn. They're the only one's I remember at the moment. Great to have a site like this to chew over old memories. Great stuff. Cheers Pete A

Richard Irvins. Just scanning the site and found photos of the newer boats and some very familiar skippers names but has anyone pictures of some of the oldies eg.Abergeldie, Polar Prince, Earl of Buchan and others. Having a bit of a reminisce here as my Dad and Grandad worked for Irvins.

Hi Shields Trawler Folk. My second try, anyone got photos of the Fish Quay with Trawlers alongside ? Remember back in the 50 's when you could walk the length of the quay on the boats without going ashore. Was the busiest place in my world at the time. My Grandad Robert and my Father Horace both worked for Irvins in the office until they passed away in 1960 and 1975 respectively. Irvins office, store,net floor and workshops were my second home until going deep sea in 60 after summer jobs on Drifters Lizzie West and Young Duke. Could not believe when I was over in Shields about 11 years ago that everything was derelict. So sad that people, jobs and buildings had all been let go.

Ben Dearg and sister trawler Commiles came to Albany, Western Australia in 1949. Ben Dearg scuttled off Swarbrick’s Beach east of Albany in 1951 after the fishing venture failed
