One thought on “Lyness

  1. Together with members of my family I will visit the Islands in June 2015 in order to pay tribute to my late uncle James Connelly who perished in 1934 when the Trawler Leicestershire foundered off the South coast of Hoy.

    I have photographs of the monument erected by the Islanders in memory of the crew and would be obliges if you would confirm whether it is still available to see.

    We look forward to visiting the museums on our visit.

    Kind regards

    William E Connelly
