There's a statue commemorating the incident at the corner of Boulevard in Hull (in the heart of the fishing community) depicting Skipper Smith of the Crane. There's also a piece of companionway with a Russian shell hole in it in our excellent Maritime Museum.
There were possibly more lives lost aboard Russian vessels, as in the confusion they not only shelled our trawlers, but each other.
