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:

Some Current Half Price Offers

 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.

 The third of the Royal Navy's Vanguard class submarines, HMS Vigilant (S30) entered service on 2nd November 1996.  She is based at HMNB Clyde at Faslane and carries the UK's nuclear deterrent Trident ballistic missile.  Manned by a crew of 14 officers and 121 men, her main power is supplied by one Rolls Royce PWR2 nuclear reactor driving two GEC turbines.

HMS Vigilant by Ivan Berryman. (P)
Half Price! - 725.00
 The key to Nelsons victories always lay in his meticulous planning and the Battle of Copenghagen was no exception as he used his fleet to first destroy the Danish floating defences so that his bomb vessels could be brought up to bombard the city itself. The Danes eventually capitulated, but they had fought hard and over 2,000 men had died on both sides before the end of the battle. In this view, HMS Elephant, carrying the flag of Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson, dominates the scene as the battle gathers intensity. British ships depicted, left to right, are the Glatton (54), Elephant (74), Ganges (74) and Monarch (74)

Some Current Half Price Offers

 Kentucky - born Steve Cauthen was just 12 years old when his father Tex finally agreed to help the single-minded young man realise a burning ambition to become a jockey provided he didnt let success make him big-headed.  No parental proviso was ever more faithfully fulfilled.  In the year of his seventeenth birthday the kid rode 487 winners of 6 million dollars, including the U.S. Triple Crown on Affirmed.  He went on to captivate British hearts two years later.  By 1984 he was champion. But better was to come. No wonder the fairytale ingredients of 1985 have fired the imagination and talent of Peter Deighan to such compelling effect.
