Shipping, shipbuilding and fishing at Whitby


Postby peter4447 » Sun May 27, 2012 5:24 pm

The 200 ton Dutch coaster 'Rejo' built in 1940 working cargo at Whitby.
Taken over by Germany during WW2 she was returned to her original owners and gave many years useful service under the Dutch flag. She became the Guernsey registered 'Alderney Courier' before being based in the West Indies. By 1992 she was in poor condition and after being condemned was stripped and abandoned.
