Trawlermen Memorial at St Andrew's Quay in Hull.

In 1968 three fishing trawlers St. Romanus, Kingston Peridot and Ross Cleveland all from Hull sank killing a total of 58 crew members. It was a start of many changes to come in the fishing industry. Safety campaigns began between wives of trawlermen and trawler owners with also government ministers. This resulted in many changes to the conditions and the way fishermen would work on trawlers.

Nearly 50 years later, a memorial for those who lost their lives was unveiled along The Humber at St Andrew's Quay in Hull. Many people turned out to see and pay tribute at the unveiling on Sunday 12th February 2017.

On the morning of 21st February as I was passing with my camera I decided to take a few photos as the sun was starting to rise.
