16 Feb 1940 The Hull trawler Loch Hope picked up two survivors from the Swedish Steamer Liana which had been torpedoed 20 miles off Kinnaird Head 7 survivors were also picked up from the Swedish steamer Osmed which had also been torpedoed by the same submarine 10 minutes previously - submarine was U14.

TRAWLER BLOWN UP BY MINE

11 Jun 1947 A Lloyds message through Wick Radio from the Hull trawler Goth stated that the Hull trawler Loch Hope had been blown up by mine. One person missing, survivors were going to Seydisfjordur onboard the Fleetwood trawler URKA FD 289. The Loch Hope after surviving war service left Hull alone on the 31st May for the fishing grounds and was fishing off Iceland on the 11th June, when at approximately 9 pm, she trawled a mine in it`s net, as the trawl was hauled and brought up alongside a terrific explosion was heared by the crew as the mine exploded killing one man and injuring 14 others, some that were on deck, leaning over the side. the damage from the mine explosion caused the vessel to founder within 9 minutes. 17 of the crew were rescued by the Fleetwood Trawler URKA FD 289 ( Skpr Harold Brunton ) fishing only 40 yards away, she pulled alongside the Loch Hope and the men jumped aboard her. The Urka landed the crew of the Loch Hope in Iceland seven hours later, 5 of the injured men were flown from Port Seydisfjordur to Reykjavik . 3 of the more seriously injured men Neave, Fall and Jenkinson remained in hospital and could not be moved. 13 of the crew returned home to Hull from Iceland in the trawler Jupiter. The 3 hospitalised men would later return by flying from Reykjavik to Prestwick and train from Glasgow.

Harold Brunton, 36 skipper of the Fleetwood trawler URKA FD289, after saving the men from the Loch Hope and landing them in Iceland, returned to the fishing grounds, were he received the devastating news that his mother Mrs Laura Brunton had collapsed and died. In a journey by sea and air that would cover nearly 1,000 miles the Urka headed for Stornoway, where a plane from Blackpool had been arranged by his family to pick up Skipper Brunton to fly him the 400 miles home for the funeral.
