War Service Crewman

Like most Hull trawlermen the sacrifices and hardships of war were never talked about, today many families are unaware of the role played by their ancestors, it is with no doubt that without the contribution of the little ships as they were called the outcome of WW2 could have been quite different. These unsung heroe`s classed themselves as only doing their duty but against remarkable odds, with only grit and courage and little armament they kept a far superior force at bay

After the war Francis took his family and emigrated to Canada where they live today, but he continued his life with the sea and became a Master Mariner, and Captain of the Wolfe Islander Ferry. Sadly at a time when the fishing fleet of Hull was in it`s final years Francis Mason passed away in 1983.

Now safely anchored but never forgotten.
