Can anyone please offer any info on a coaster called 'Fairy'. Bridge and accom were all aft and I think she had a white funnel with a black top. She was probably around 300 gross tons and she came in Harwich in the 1950's with (I assume) coal for the local Gasworks. I have never been able to find any information on her, so any help would be appreciated,

Ahoy Peter,

Is this the one your looking for? If so, she is the ex Dollard, built 1930
