Anyone with any information on the Themsleigh ? owners were TES (Tyson, Edgar & Spice). She was an old steam coaster, I joined as 2nd mate in 1952 and made several trips between Port Talbot and Hamburg, coal out, scrap back. Also many visits to load at Goole. believe the owners had one other vessel, the Satco Prefect.
