Re: Requisitioned Trawlers WW2 Crew Losses

There was a site which had extensive coverage: www.harry-tates.org.uk.
It appears to be under maintenance. You may be able to pick -up something if and when it is resurrected.

There is also mention of planes of Japanese ship RYUJO and shore based planes. Goo...

Re: Minimum Age for entry to Royal Navy

The question is "Was he actually in the Royal Navy?"

There is ample evidence of 14 year-olds joining the Merchant Navy. Billy McGee has written much on this

"They Shall Grow Not Old" and "Ropner's Navy"

Re: Trawler Donna Nook WW1

A bit more digging in Lloyds etc shows that from about 1930 onwards it was managed by Mount Steam Fishing Co. Ltd, apparently of Fleetwood.
Managers variously Sir G E J Moody and William B Moody of Fish Dock Road Grimsby but registered throughout in Fleetwood.

A little mysterious?

Re: HMS Grimsby

Greetings Jordi
There seems to be little detail from UK sources, Wrecksite gives some information about both ships, indicating that one ship was sunk earlier and the other later in the day. Have a look.

Good hunting
