Campaign To Return WWI Steam Trawler

A group of trustees are seeking to return one of the only surviving steam trawlers used in the First World War. The Viola was built in East Yorkshire in 1906 and operated from Humber Dock as part of a fleet of boxing trawlers. However, after a career which included being used to defend the UK in the Great War and as a fishing vessel around the world, campaigners are now hoping to return the boat from a South Georgian beach to Hull, East Yorks. The trustees have since teamed up with a distillery, who have named their special brand of gin after the Viola. >click to read<11:24
