    This postcard photo (postmark date illegible) of Concarneau shows the former Le Havre pilot cutter INGOUVILLE. All I have been able to establish is that she was in service at Le Havre 1948-1958. She looks to me as if she may have previously been a minesweeper. Her funnel has EM, or possibly EAM.
