Admin DavidOwen Posted 31 January , 2018 Admin Share Posted 31 January , 2018 Were those who fished on trawlers during ww1 entitled to any medals as the merchant seamen were? Asking because a friend's relative Sidney Wilfred Bates was a Trimmer aboard Grimsby Steam Trawler CHESHIRE was killed when it hit a mine 7th July 1915 but I can't find a record of a medal card for him on the National Archives site. He is remembered on the Tower Hill Memorial Interestingly the sinking made the New York Times! NY Times re sinking of Cheshire.pdf Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
