    Lizz According to Angus Martins book "The Ringnetters" The innovation of this design was with the building of the Falcon by J Miller in St Monance in 1922 for Campbelltown owners It should add she was built for ringnetting not seine netting as she was being used for in the picture
    I think the 3 men on the Mhari Bahns deck were Wullig Anderson in the bow Johners Sinclair beside the wheelhouse and Mike Miller aft
    All best

    I think this photo was taken when she was handed over from the builders by the look of the people in white shirts and ties,and the young boys aboard.
