|Royal Navy patrol vessel built at Northwich by Pimblott's in 1954. This ship was unusual in having engines made by Foden, the Sandbach company more known for their lorries (fine vehicles they were too!) There was talk of her being restored and returned to the River Weaver around 2000, though I'm not sure that this came to anything?
Seen here at Mevagissey, Cornwall on 27/6/82. I clearly remember a contingent of her crew being outrageously drunk in a local pub that evening :lol:
