Info on Hardy winches?

Does anyone have info on the above winches? Particularly 1930s built, driven from the main motor, and used for seining and ringing. Where were hardys based? Any pics, anyone? Thanks, Graham

Do a google search with Hardy winches and several websites come up with their details

Thanks, gdynia. Had already tried that with various combinations of search words. No luck, tho. Have tried emailing a Hardy Engineering to see if theyy were possibly the makers.
Is there anyone who has worked on a vessel with a Hardy winch? Were they common?

Still drawing a blank. It appears that these winches were only common around the East Lothian area, so were possibly built in that area...anyone know?
