Hello,

Does anybody have any information about Loch Torridon built 1930 by John Lewis & Sons, Aberdeen. She had been owned by Caledoni Fishing Company in Hull and Loch Fishing Company, Hull. I am keen to find a picture of her. She was later renamed Almancil when sold to a Portugese Company. My great uncle Tommy Young was skipper in 1931. Thanks.

Hi Rusty, Thanks for your reply however this is not the same Loch Torridon that I am interested in finding out about.

Hi Redlands,
cannot find anything but interestingly the shipyard launched the Loch Ard the following year for the same company. She was exactly the same specifications, so maybe a sistership. Loch Ard is mentioned in this site, and a photo. More info on the wrecksite too.
regards
bob
