Welcome to the crew from the northern half of the East Yorkshire contingent, Robert.
Plenty of information on the site and if it isn't there someone will probably find it for you. Enjoy the voyage.

Hi Robert, First of all welcome to Ships Nostalgia from the lower, but better, half of East Yorkshire.
I presume you have the history of your grandfathers ship and the events leading to her loss, you may find more history here :-http://www.rnps.lowestoft.org.uk/rnpsbooks.htm

I have no pictures of her but another source may be : http://www.antiqbook.co.uk/boox/bkf/books1000.shtml

As she was a Hull trawler more dat may be available on:- http://www.hulltrawler.net/ a sister ship photo may give some idea of how she looked the nearest Admiralty trawler I have data on is the Loch Oskaig 431 built 1937 there is a pic of her on this site
