At the beginning of the war Sunderland had a small fleet of nine steam trawlers.
Five were owned by two small companies, The Wear Steam Fishing Company Limited and the Vedra Steaming Fishing Company Limited. Three Sunderland businessmen were the principle shareholders,
W. S. Dawson of Dawson and Usher, rope makers; Paul Wayman, a coal merchant; and James Hall, a fish salesman.
Hall owned the other four trawlers and a motor fishing boat.
