HMS Whitethorn
« on: 11 August 2021 05:00:53 pm »

My grandfather served on the M/S trawler Whitethorn at HMS Baldur, Iceland from Feb 43 to April 44. We havenít been able to track down any photographs of her, I believe pennant no was T127, would anyone have any further info or point us in the right direction? Many thanks

Have you seen this website/:


https://modelshipwrightsofniagara.weebly.com/uploads/1/1/5/7/115718011/hms_whitethorn_article_for_mson.pdf
It is about the restoration of a model of the Whitethorn and includes a " ..photo of the ship, taken by a crew member whose name was written on the reverse."

Looks like this is now at New Brunswick Museum in St John, NB. Canada.

Might be worth trying to contact them..
