<HTML>Hi Everyone

Just for anyone interested, my latest book: Shipwrecks of the East Coast (UK) Volume-1 (1766-1917) is now available from Tempus Publishing Ltd of Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK. It covers most of the wrecks lost from 1766 and 1917, which are still to be found on the seabed in the area between Whitby to Skegness (Lincolnshire) and out to the Outer-Dowsing. Price is 17.99 Stirling & $26.99 US

<HTML>I was just about to ask you about this - good for you!

All the best of luck with it, it must be such a great feeling.

So, what's the next one going to be about?

<HTML>Hi Siri

Thanks for the kind comments. The next one, Volume-2, 1918-2000) is actually at the publishers now and should be out around the middle of June.
Not sure from here, but I'm considering doing one about all the WW2 RN trawlers that were lost? Trouble is I don't know how much interest there will be.

Cheers Ron</HTML>

<HTML>I would think there would be quite a bit of interest in having those gathered in one place. Have you seen Forbes Wilson's website by the way? There are probably many like him who would like to see more reference materials on these trawlers.

Here's Forbes' page on trawlers
main page is at

(He has become one of my "Internet friends", and calls me every year when he's in Namsos, having found the people there who took care of his grandfather and the rest of the crew after their ship was bombed. He and his father has been going there every year for the past 3 years for the 17th of May celebrations - there's a memorial there. One year he even went by Hegra, where I grew up, and took a lot of pictures for me).

I'm sorry Beverley, I'm not quite clear on what this is all about and what you want me to do here (assuming your note is for me?). Could you clearify for me, please?

Hi Beverley

I have just noted your letter on this section of the website, because I haven't been on it lately. I started a book about submarines lost around the UK instead of a trawler book, because some chap has just written two and they are available from
The Cap D'antifer is in my new book (Shipwrecks of the East Coast' by Tempus Publishing) which should be out in August, however, unfortunately I have no crew names.

Cheers Ron
