Six brothers and friend went to sea and only one came back.

October 9, 2012

2015: A friend of a friend has just posted this Video of the Energetic on facebook. Great to see.


Last October (2011), I posted a picture of the fishing boat PZ. 114 “The Energetic’ and The Richards Family – Porthleven pre-1948.

It’s a sad story. I have copies of the Western Morning News from the time.

25th June 1948 – Six brothers and  friend went to sea and only one came back.
My Grandfather ‘Perkins’ was one of those men that was lost.
