Eight ships of the Royal Navy have carried the name and as the bowl is not dated, diffiult to identify the actual vessel it came from.

Shipwright's Scribe - Click for the bigger picture SoldShipwright's Scribe - This instrument is made from hardwood and we believe it would have been used in a shipyard to assist with marking timber during the boat building process. Unusually, it is embossed with a King's Crown and a George VI cypher. In addition, it has been stamped with the names of 37 people on each of the four sides of the instrument. We can only speculate, but perhaps this was done by shipwright colleagues who presented the instrument as a leaving memento to a retiring worker. Central stem 8" (20 cm)

In December 1939 the number had halved, with the most efficient being conscripted into the Royal Naval Patrol Service. Milford Princess registered port no. M228 carried pennant FY616, indicating she was assigned to minesweeping duties. She served from September 1939 to September 1945, after which time she was returned to her owners.
