Think these pics are earlier than 1959, or at least the last one is. Lively Hope only had the registration number LH32 from 1934 until 1949.

Many of the fishing boats shown have Scottish registration letters...LH = Leith, FR =Fraserburgh, CY=Castlebay, but where was the KW mark from?

I can't find it listed in my book of marks.

Fascinating stuff. After a bit of searching it seems they are from Katwijk in the Netherlands.
