Comments:

Thomas Wing was a Liberal MP for Grimsby from January 1910 until December 1910. I guess he wanted to experience life on a trawler.

The SS (ST) Cyrano (GY80) was built in 1905 by Cochrane & Sons Ltd., Selby. In 1915, she was requisitioned for war service as a minesweeper. She has been listed as "missing" since she was lost on a North Sea trip from Grimsby in 1919.
