I remember seeing this dredger at Aberdeen in the 1950s - she was of strange layout. Does anybody have any details or photos as I am coming up with nothing on this vessel

I am sure there is a photo of her in the book about Aberdeen port.I think the name is "Maritime Aberdeen." The Maritime Museum in Aberdeen may also help you.

Success - I found photos on the Aberdeen University Archive website - hadn't realised she was a suction job!

Yes, there a dozens of pics of the Annie on the U of A Website. I'm getting hold of the drawings so a model is likely! And when finished it will suck sand!
