    Trawlers – World War 2. All Trawlers operated by RN, regardless of origin, were typically given the prefix HMT which stood for “His Majesty’s Trawler”. During Admiral Lord Charles Beresford recommended that steam trawlers be used in the role of minesweepers in the event of war. This would free up warships for other, more. I purchased this book for my father, who grew up in Grimsby and worked on trawlers. Now in his 90's he loved the book, remembering the ships and men. Beside his personal connection to the stories in the book, it is a wonderful history of this part of the Second World War. I highly reccommend it to anyone interested in war s: 3.
