Remembered Today:

"Loch Fyne"

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am researching men from my local Cenotaph and have come across a Skipper of the "Loch Fyne" who died in 1915 and was on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Website as a Casualty, see below. Commonwealth War Graves Commission ADAMS, JAMES FREDERICK Initials: J F Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Skipper Regiment/Service: Mercantile Marine Unit Text: "Loch Fyne." Date of Death: 06/09/1915 Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead Memorial: TOWER HILL MEMORIAL I am trying to find out where he was born and where his family home was, just to confirm if he is the right man I am researching. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance, Mavis Williams (Mrs.)

Here is another:

BROWN, George Douglas, Second Hand, MM. Sailing Trawler "Loch Fyne" (Lowestoft) 6.9.15

(Loch is spelt Lock in the CWGC listing).

I cannot find any other listing or details of the trawler.

Cheers, Terry

Thank you Silent Warrior, TcM59 and Robb Robinson for your contributions, but I have just come to the conclusion that this James Frederick ADAMS is the wrong man! I would love to think he is, as he is the only James Frederick ADAMS on the CWGC,but I found possibles, who might fit, in the local town, Connah's Quay, (see below) but I am wondering if it might be the Father or one the 2 sons, Father named Joseph and the sons named James & John, but no 2nd name for any of them. Anyway I am on the wrong Forum for that, so please accept my thanks and apologies. You are so good. Is this the right Family in Connah's Quay?
