  Originally powered by a National 2DM but now powered by a Russell Newbery DM2. She was hired to the London Fire Service during the last war and worked on fire fighting duties in the Surrey Docks. After the war was converted to a house boat and in 1948 made a historic trip down the Kennet & Avon Canal to prove that it was still navigable. De-converted by the mid 1970s and spent the next 25 years operating as a camping boat paired with ARA and based at Braunston. Seen at Maffers Xmas 2002. Bought by present owner in 2004. Photo
