Thank you so much Arthurk, it's very much appreciated and I am thrilled to bits to have the title.
Thank you Bookbox, yes I had heard that part of it, but couldn't remember it well enough to write it down!

Armed Forces / Title of a military march

Hi, I hope this isn't an inappropriate request.  If it is, please delete it.  I would like to know the title of a military march, the notes of which, I have attached below.  I am hoping that someone who has played in a military band might recognise it.

Thank you very much in advance.

That's brilliant, thank you Hugh.  So the trawler sailed out of Boston.  I wonder how that worked, when George lived in Grimsby?

How can I access that article please?

Thanks,

Diana

Lincolnshire / rescue of a ships crew by George Prike, Skipper of the Leverton trawler
« on: Saturday 06 October 18 17:46 BST (UK)  »
I wondered if anyone could throw any light on a story I have been told, regarding the rescue of a ship's crew, by my relative George Prike.  It possibly happened around 1893 and I think George and his crew received awards for this. 

At the time, George was Skipper of the trawler Leverton.  He was living in Grimsby in the 1881, 1891 and 1901 censuses, so possibly this ship sailed out of there.

Thanks for any help.

Oh thank you very much Trish.  I have only just seen your message.  No wonder I couldn't find his birth! 
That's strange that his name was registered as Francis?

I am very grateful for the information, thank you.

Hi, I have just found on Ancestry, a death for a William Shepherd age 28, born 1855 Died 6th March 1883.  Says - Merchant Marine - at sea, Great Britain.  Needs looking into I think.

There are records which I have also just found, of fishermen who died at sea 1880 - 1882, but William is not on them.  If he died in 1883, he wouldn't be.
