The fleetwood trawler "BOSTONIAN" was lost in 1938 off Barra Head and I have discovered one of my relatives was lost.I cant find a record of the crew or the exact position of the loss or the reason for the sinking. Any help would be welcome Thanks in advance. :)

Looks like the National Maritime Museum has full details on wrecks, but much of their records are not computerised, so you'll need someone to pop down their archive department. Shouldn't be difficult as you have a name and date.
