Thank you for dealing with the playing card issue!

River monitors are always interesting.

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:
