More odd trawler names
« on: July 09, 2012, 11:19:08 pm »
Oh dear - I never thought I'd say such as strange thing as 'I love russian trawler names'  but I do...straight numbers according to Intrepid...beautiful.

Please could anyone unravel the two trawlers at 3.12 pm on this page?

Thank you!  I've tried: Susarton (and varieties of) and Sorpidon (and varieties of).

I haven't searched any records but I made them out as Susarow & Sorpidon

Don't sound too out of line for russian ships especially as they are probably anglicized versions of cyrillic script

Thanks Pete, Thanks jil,
Good point that they might be russian names - I certainly can't find them amongst the Fleetwood or even Clydeside boats.
I tried Sarpidon, jil, but no luck either. Perhaps they will appear again later on and in more clarity.  Fingers crossed!  :D

These are both on the Grimsby Trawler site:
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/grimsby.trawlers/
There list is currently scrambled a bit, you have to click the link to the apparently only trawler number to get the whole humongous list.  Use CTRL-F to look for names, they are listed by hull number.

Also on this, which is more organized in listing the names of all the Grimsby trawlers, asphabetically.
http://deepseatrawlers.co.uk/page2.php
Their list of Navy Trawlers by year are impressive in how many trawlers were involved.
