Days gone by – a wreck on Rum

The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

Reader Char­lie McCurdy sent in this pic­ture of a wrecked trawler on Rum. He said: ‘ With ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle Morvern Lines and a visit to Rum in last week’s Oban Times, and the men­tion of the French trawler, Jack Abry II, ashore on Rum, please find at­tached pho­to­graphs of the trawler taken in June 2012 which may be of some in­ter­est to your read­ers. I have also at­tached a pho­to­graph taken on the same date of the rust­ing bow sec­tion of a puffer pro­trud­ing from a cave on the north coast of Eigg. How she got there is a mys­tery to me. Maybe one of your read­ers could iden­tify her and tell how she ended her days in a cave on Eigg.’ If you have any in­for­ma­tion, email it to editor@ oban­ or write to Editor at The Oban Times, Crannog Lane, Lochavullin es­tate, Oban, PA34 4HB.
