I know the Rememberance day on the dock at Bullnose is around this date I used to attend it every year but now live in Spain been here 11years and still remember all the mates and relatives I lost in the fishing years, Kenny Pullen and Dave Young in the St Finbarr .The 3 ships in that 1968 winter so many good friends who I went to school with and drank with in the Pubs along Hessle Road. I still try to keep in touch with a lot of the lads and this website is one of the best for doing this .A few mates went to Aussie lost touch with them, Kev Turner ,Alec craig some good memories and sad never to come back so keep the memories alive www.trawlerman.piczo.com

I have just visited the www.trawlerman.piczo.com site and what superb content. After becoming aware of the http://hullnow.co.uk/concept-examples/heritage-dock.php site I have been drawn to gathering more information on Hull's fishing heritage. The 'trawlerman' site provides a fantastic insight into the life of the people and companies involved. Many thanks. humber_number
