Pretty interesting to learn about this apparently short lived unit of the RN.
Were these requisitioned pleasure boats and used more as utility craft than being converted to use in a combat role?

But, if a long sought after badge is unobtainable, or so rare that a huge price is being asked, is a reproduction, being sold as such, an...
