Presentation of Poret, Lobez & Cie

Poret, Lobez & Cie was a French fishing company, based in Boulogne-sur-Mer.
The trawler Paris, built in 1913, was requisitioned as Paris II during the First World War. Sunk by Turkish batteries on 13 December 1917, she was posthumously awarded the War Cross.
The trawler Monique Camille, built in 1935, was requisitioned during the Second World War. Transformed into an auxiliary minesweeper, she was involved in the evacuation of Dunkirk in May 1940 ("Dynamo Operation"), seized by the Brits on 3 July 1940 and retroceded to her shipowner in March 1945.

House flag of Poret, Lobez & Cie

The house flag of Poret, Lobez & Cie, as shown in Lloyd's book of house flags and funnels of the principal steamship lines of the world and the house flags of various lines of sailing vessels, published at Lloyd's Royal Exchange. London. E.C. (1912) [LLo12], also available online thanks to the Mystic Seaport Foundation, #865, p. 78, is horizontally divided white-red-white-red-white.
The flag is therefore identical to the house flags of Scaramanga Brothers and Georg T. Monsen, also shown by Lloyd's.
