They are :

RAMBLER (105224) (SN247) regd at 'Shields 27.5.1898 Rambler Fishing Co Ltd, North Shields

RANGER (109886) (SN256) regd at 'Shields 8.11.1898 Ranger Fishing Co Ltd, North Shields

REAPER (109898) (SN2) regd at 'Shields 3.5.1899 Reaper Fishing Co Ltd, North Shields

REIVER (113067) (SN94) regd at 'Shields 18.5.1900 Reiver Fishing Co Ltd, North Shields

ROAMER (113061) (SN47) regd at 'Shields 7.3.1900 Roamer Fishing Co Ltd, North Shields

Anything at all would be welcome.


Thanks

Thanks for this list, is there a complete list for Union Co-op? The only ones I had so far are coasters FIRE BRICK 1872 y.n.3 and PERI 1872 y.n.5.

Paul, REIVER is in CLIP site under 113067 as BEAVER changed to REAVER, reg. 10/1900, closed 1901 but REIVER seems more likely as a correct spelling?
Cheers, George
