Fact File

20 Oct 1898 Hull Daily Mail : SHIPWRECKED CREWS BROUGHT TO HULL THIS MORNING

In these days of rewards for heroism, it is hard to realise that the" lifeboatmen of the sea" do not receive more marks of favour. The Hull trawler men, who have again and again shown splendid spirit in rescuing life at sea, do not wish for decorations or recognition for heroism themselves, but there are many connected with shipping matters in Hull, and especially with the fishing industry, who desire to see some acknowledgement made.  Yesterday the crew of a cornish schooner was rescued by a Hull Trawler after a terrible experience and this morning there arrived at the Hull Fish Dock trawlers with the crews of two Norwegian schooners who had been picked up in the north sea.

A gallant feat was reported to a `Mail` representative to-day by the skipper of the Hull trawler Edward B Cargill ( J H Lynn ), which illustrates one aspect of the experiences of the Hull trawlerman. Mr Lynn states that when 200 miles off Spurn lightship, about six o clock yesterday morning, he sighted the Norwegian schooner Avance, which was bound for Norway, from Newport, with a cargo of coal. The sea was terrific; the wind was blowing a hurricane. The first intimation of the distressed condition of the vessel was the flares and other signals of distress. The Edward B Cargill reached the Avance, and laid by for four hours - until nine o`clock. They ran round her several times, and at nine o`clock they managed to launch a boa. The sea was very heavy, and launching was executed with great difficulty and danger. The schooner at that time was clean swept of the masts, and she was waterlogged. The crew which consisted of six, had congregated on the deck- house, and were waving signals. She had been on her beam ends since Wednesday morning at one o`clock, while the cabin hold had been full of water two days before- on Monday. The ship was filling with water fast: and the men had been hard at work at the pump for two or three days, " and was the ship in very great danger" asked the `Mail`representative. "Yes, She would most undoubtably have sunk before but for the hard pumping," "What was the condition of the crew?" "They were fairly worn out when they came on board in the boat; they were exhausted, we gave them some food, and as they were soaked to the skin, we supplied them with clothes. We arrived here at 8am this morning and now they have been placed in the hands of the Norwegian Consul.

The Board of Trade have received through the Consul-General for Sweden and Norway a Binocular glass for Skipper John H Lynn and Silver medals of the second class for Fred Jackson, Second Hand and Alfred Britton, Bosun of the Steam Trawler Edward B Cargill of Hull, the awards were from the Norwegian Government in recognition for their services to the shipwrecked crew of the Norwegian Schooner Avance which was abandoned in the North Sea on Oct 19th 1898.

06 Sept 1905 - A HULL SKIPPERS SUPRISE: The skipper of the Hull trawler Edward B Cargill which returned to Hull today has made a singular "catch" a week ago when on a trip he lost his pipe overboard, and on opening a cod which was amongst his catches at Hull, he had the satisfaction of finding his missing pipe in the stomach of the fish. .

08 Dec 1915 The Hull trawler Edward B Cargill has now been given up as lost she was in charge of skipper ( Lang ) Lynn and had a crew of nine,. The vessel left Hull on Nov 13th for the north sea fishing grounds and no news of her can be obtained. The voyage should have taken 10 days. The owners Cargill Steam Fishing Co have made extensive enquiries, but without any favourable result.
