Got a nice Polar Diesel Engine sales catalogue from Ray Hooley on ebay at the weekend, missed a couple of other interesting ones, Ray always starts and finishes his auctions all together, so juggling to bid on a few at the last minute can be interesting!
The catalogue lists and pictures a few ships that the engines were fitted into, including the "Saint Martin Legasse" a motor trawler.
Interestingly, this name comes up on Google as part of a U-boat search fleet in the 1940's, and although I couldn't find any other references it probably led a charmed life.
The ship was possibly registered in France, but was built at Falmouth as one of four similar vessels, all with Polar diesels. The Builder was Cox & Company.
I will be putting the complete book on the website under the Marine section.
