Viola is the sole surviving Hull steam trawler from the huge fleet which put 'fish & chips' on Britain's plates more than a hundred years ago. In this account, maritime historians Robb Robinson and Ian B. Hart lead us from her ancestry and origins in the Victorian and Edwardian North Sea fishery - vividly describing life in the most dangerous industry of its time - through her Great War service as a U-boat hunter and minesweeper, and on to her careers hunting seals and whales in the Southern Ocean before her final abandonment in South Georgia.
