Hi there

Would anyone have an image of the coaster Roam please which started as an Admiralty X craft - X42 in 1915, was converted to a tanker and renamed Lobster then sold to commercial interests in 1920 (F. H. Connor, London) and then to F T Everard in 1921.

As the coaster Roam she sank on 26 October 1926 off the north east of the Goodwin sands while on passage from London to Bruge with a cargo of tar

No photo I am afraid, however X48 to X53 were built by Richardson Duck at Stockton-on-Tees as Motor Landing Craft in 1917.
