M.G.B. 318 was the same class and carried the same armament. These craft tended to ship quite an amount of water at times, as you can tell by the picture.

She was built by Aldous Successors Ltd. at the shipyard, Brightlingsea, and completed June 7, 1941. She was made ready for disposal in October, 1945 and moored in the River Dart.
