    Post Silver Birch TT151 Photos


    I am looking for photographs of the fishermen that would have been on this particular boat. My granda was called John Curran, who lived in Tarbert. HIs nickname was "darkie". He probably would have been working on the boat about 1947 onwards. He would have been born and bred Tarbert. Use to be pals with "boytoy" McFarlane.
    Any info especially photographs would be of great help. None of us have any photos of my granda.
    Many Thanks.

    I don't know if this is of any help but there are photos in Brain Ward's book of Tarbert boats. One shot is of the Silver Birch with her first reg BF 186 and one of her beached for painting. Built as a seine netter in 47 by Nobles and transferred to Tarbert in 49 until 54. Owned by Willie McDougall and Donald McNeil. Send me a PM if you want more info on photos, but no people . Best Wishes to you.
