I found old pics of RRNavy's river minesweepers during WW2 . They were armored boats , equipped for magnetic minesweeping (magnetic mines dropped by aircraft) . I think this boat is verry similar to czehoslovakian river minelayer who served on Danube during WW2 in RRN (in this thread on page 2) and it is possible to be the same class of ships !

Minelayer AURORA was a ship with an interesting destiny . The ship was built in 1909 in Taranto , named BASILISK and was used like tug and passenger-ship . During WW1 KUK BASILISK became minelayer in Adriatic Sea in Austro-Hungarian Navy . After war KUK BASILISK was transfered to French Navy and renamed AURORE . In 1922 the ship entered in Romanian Royal Navy , named AURORA , until 1927 , when was transfered to merchant Navy . In 1939 AURORA was reactivated as minelayer in Romanian Royal Navy . There is a legend regarding this ship : gunboat REMUS LEPRI (Friponne-class) sunk after hitting a mine lay by AURORA . After this event the mines layed by minelayer AURORA were with the warhead inactive . Is that true ?

RRN had only 3 Vosper class torpedoboats. They were identical. The soviet navy also had Vosper class units.
The differences between the ships that appear in photographs seem obvious:

 Launched on Trafalgar Day, 1960, HMS Dreadnought was the Royal Navy's first nuclear powered submarine, entering service in 1963.  She is depicted here in the Firth of Forth with the iconic Forth Bridge in the background in December 1963 when she was docked at Rosyth for re-coating of her hull and a general examination.

 In the early morning murk of 24th May 1941, the forward 15in guns of HMS Hood fire the first shots against the mighty German battleship Bismarck. Both Bismarck and her escort, the Prinz Eugen, immediately responded, the latter causing a fierce fire on Hoods upper deck, while plunging shot from Bismarck penetrated deep into the British ships hull, causing an explosion that ripped the Hood apart, sinking her in an instant. Tragically, just three survivors were rescued from the water.

 Erich Lowenhardt was already the holder of the Knights Cross 1st and 2nd Class for acts of bravery even before becoming a pilot. After serving as an observer for a year, he was eventually posted to Jasta 10 in 1917 where he immediately began to score victories, sending down balloons and enemy aircraft at a fearsome rate. He was appointed Commander of Jasta 10 one week before his 21st birthday, making him one the youngest pilots to rise to such a rank in the German Army Air Service. He continued to increase his score steadily throughout 1917 and 1918, but was involved in a mid-air collision with a Jasta 11 aircraft on 10th August. Lowenhardt elected to abandon his aircraft, but his parachute failed to deploy and the young ace fell to his death. He flew a number of aircraft, but this yellow-fuselaged Fokker D.VII was his most distinctive and is believed to be the aircraft in which he was killed. His final victory total was 54.

Half Price! - £60.00
 Despite crippling damage to their Lancaster ED925 (G), the crew of AJ-M continued to press home their attack on the Mohne Dam on the night of 16th/17th May 1943. With both port engines ablaze, Flt Lt J V Hopgood forced his blazing aircraft on, releasing the Upkeep bomb just precious seconds too late to strike the dam, the mine instead bouncing over the wall and onto the power station below with devastating results. ED925 attempted to recover from the maelstrom, but the fuel fire was too intense and the aircraft was tragically lost, just two of her crew managing to escape the impact to spend the rest of the war as PoWs.
