Presentation of Pêcheries Cameleyre

Société Anonyme des Pêcheries Cameleyre was a French fishing company, based in Arcachon.
The fishing port of Arcachon was in the past one of the most innovative ones in France. The port saw in 1837 the first steam trawler in the world. There were three main fishing companies in Arcachon at the end of the XIXth century, the Pêcheries de l'Océan, founded in 1866, the Pêcheries Cameleyre Frères and the Société Nouvelle des Pêcheries à Vapeur, both founded a few years later. These companies operated steam trawlers, which needed coal, not available locally. Therefore, a regular cargo line was opened between Arcachon and England: the ships left Arcachon with a cargo of pine trunks, used as pillars in the English coal mines, and came back with a cargo of coal. The pines came from the neighbouring forest of Landes.

The Cameleyre company was founded in 1919 by Henri and Vincent Cameleyre, who bought two wooden trawalers, the Cachalot (Sperm Whale) and the Drisse (Halyard). In 1927, the company operated seven trawlers, one sardine boat and one tug boat. The trawlers Vincent Cameleyre, René Cameleyre and Jules Pierre were lost at sea in 1942. The company, owning seven trawlers in 1948 but only two in 1958, was deleted from the Lloyd's register in 1964.

House flag of Pêcheries Cameleyre

The house flag of Cameleyre, as shown on a company share and two documents dated 1922 and 1927, is diagonally divided from upper left corner to lower right one, the lower triangle being red with a white letter "C", the upper triangle being white with a blue letter "F".

The share is beautifully done, with the flag in each top corner flying from poles actually drawn in along both sides of the share. Whether the details are genuine, I don't know, but itis worth noting that the two flags show us different sides, yet the letters are in obverse on both.
