Wilhelmina J, a 26m beam trawler left Portsmouth on April 9, 1991, to trawl for scallops in the English Channel near fishing grounds known as Horseshoe Bank. But at 2am on April 10, the vessel was involved in a collision during foggy conditions with MV Zulfikar, a 142m Cyprus-registered cargo ship.
All six members of the Portsmouth boat were lost at sea.
A 1992 investigation into what happened said the most likely cause of the collision was a failure by Zulfikar and a possible failure by Wilhelmina J to obtain early radar warning of the risk of collision and take avoiding action
The six men who died were; Jeff Alan Venters, Michael James Bell, Mark Warwick Fitz, Christopher Clifford Thomas, Guy Ransom Davies and Matthew James Hodge.
Their names are on a plaque in Old Portsmouth Fishermans Quay, a memorial in the Old Portsmouth cathedral and a plaque in the Bridge Tavern pub
We pay tribute to those that lost their lives on the Wilhelmina J with this t shirt.
