Dear Sir, I’m sorry if this is not the correct procedure for this inquiry into my quest to find the four “Tons” built by the Dorset Yacht Co. as per the Summary
of All Coastal Craft by Builder -1951 – 57 on page 31. in the book “Last of The Wooden Walls” Having read “Jacks of All Trades” and carried out other investigations on the internet I can only find three? These being :- HMS Invermoriston M1150, HMS Durweston (Kakinda Indian Navy) & HMS Stratton (Kimberley South African Navy). I know another two “Tons” Durban & Windhoek were built privately for the S.A. Navy but cannot find who they were built by? According to Lake Yards website (Dorset Yacht Co) they built 2 “Tons” & 5 “Ham Class” In the Summary as mentioned above, The Dorset Yacht Co. built :- 4 Tons, 2 Ham Class & 1 Ley Class.
Can you please advise me as to the missing “Ton” & the correct number of Ham or Ley Class built by The Dorset Yacht Co. Hamworthy Poole.
Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide. Gordon Guthrie.
According to Jack Worth’s British Warships Since 1945 pt4 Minesweepers, the Dorset Yacht Co. built the 3 Tons mentioned above, Portisham, Wrentham and Burley.
