HMS Bacchante - 2nd Cod War. Gallery, Page 2

Trawlers & Trawlermen

..and here I would like to state my own admiration for deep sea fisherman. I could not believe people would choose to adopt such a hazardous and uncomfortable job. These pictures do not do justice to the miserable weather conditions that we often endured - rough seas, ice on the superstructure, intense cold. It could be bad enough on a frigate, what must it have been like on a trawler? Perhaps any site about the cod wars should also include descriptions and pictures of Hull & Grimsby, and other fishing ports, before and after the cod wars.
