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:

 On the night of 12th September 1944, Lancaster NF958 (LS-M) of No.15 Sqn was lost in the skies above Mannheim when it was attacked by the Messerschmitt Bf.110G-2 of Ofw Ludwig Schmidt of II/NGJ 6, the bomber receiving hits to the bomb bay which ignited the incendiaries still in their racks.  Five of the crew bailed out and were taken prisoner of war once captured.  The pilot, F/O Norman Overend RNZAF, did not escape the aircraft.  Flt Sgt Harry A Beverton was seen to leave the stricken Lancaster but was not seen again.<br><br><b>Crew of <i>Lancaster LS-M</i> :</b><br><br>F/O Norman Overend RNZAF<br>Sgt Barry J Howarth <i>(survived)</i><br>Sgt George B Thomson <i>(survived)</i><br>Flt Sgt John D Jones <i>(survived)</i><br>Flt Sgt Robert P E Kendall <i>(survived)</i><br>Flt Sgt Harry A Beverton<br>Sgt I Spagatner <i>(survived)</i>.

Half Price! - £45.00
 With 39 confirmed victories to his credit, Major John Gilmour is also recognised as the joint highest scoring pilot on the Martinsyde G.100 Elephant, an unusual score given the poor performance of this aircraft in one-on-one combat. He was awarded the DSO, MC and 2 Bars during the course of his flying career and in 1917 was posted to 65 Squadron as Flight Commander flying Sopwith Camels. On 1st July 1918, he downed three Fokker D.VIIs, a Pfalz and an Albatros D.V in the space of just 45 minutes.  In 1918 he was promoted to the rank of major and posted to command 28 Squadron in Italy, staying with the trusty Camel, but he did not add further to his score, although his final un-confirmed total may have been as high as 44. He is depicted here claiming his second kill on 24th September 1916 when he destroyed a Fokker E.1 whilst flying Elephant No 7284.
