The Headscarf Revolutionaries who made the sea a safer place for their men
This weekend - half a century since Hull's triple trawler tragedy of 1968 - families will gather at Hull Minster for a memorial service for the 58 fishermen who were lost.
The disaster mobilised an army of women, who led the fight for better safety at sea. Michael Billington has been speaking to Yvonne Blenkinsop - the last of the so-called 'Headscarf Revolutionaries, to Dr Brian Lavery who is author of 'The Headscarf Revoultionaries' and to Lorna Denness, daughter of Headscarf Revolutionary Mary Denness who died last year.
Donald Woolley was the Assistant Superintendent at the Fishermen's Mission in Hull at the time of the tragedy.
Aged just 25, he and his superintendent were tasked with the dreadful job of delivering the news of the triple trawler tragedy to bereaved families. It's something he will never forget.
