2011 deleted [No Longer updated by (LRF) IHS (since 24-08-2011)] So, a long life of at least almost 50 years.

Although Albert Weller chopped off his stern I thought this was an interesting view of a vessel actually on Austin's pontoon!

Falconer Moffat Birks CBE, Chief Engineer and the last Deputy Governor of North Thames Gas (1941-1945.)
Later became Deputy Chairman so I'm guessing that would be after 1949.
Brought the last cargo of Gas Coal to the Nine Elms Gas Works in January 1970 and sold shortly afterwards.
Paul Hood. + WSS Tyneside Branch Hon Sec.
