She must have been HEADMAN for a little while.

John Clarksons picture ofher arriving at Blyth in 1962 shows her with the Maltese Cross and Buff Funnel.
She olso had a white lifeboat later replaced with a Black one as shown.
The funnel top also shows a lot more discolouration.

She was priced at £15,000 but they got her for the knock down price of £11,250.
When sold for scrapping in 1972 they got £3,000 for her.
