Footnotes

  • A generic model for a pair of Steam Trawlers built for the Consolidated Steam Fishery and Ice Company, Grimsby.

    Both vessels initially worked out of Grimsby, although Green Howard was later moved to Consolidated's operation at Swansea. In 1939 at the start of WW2, both vessels were requisitioned by the Admiralty as Minesweepers, returning to the owners in 1946. Green Howard was broken up in 1957.
