The London and Rochester Trading Company had its base on The Medway at Strood and small vessels used the buoy for many years. In this view from the 70's are from the left Horation, Cecil Gilders, Roer, Rodent, ?, ?, ?, Ignition.

Hi,
The barge six from the left could be either the Flagon or the Beam, both Ex 'X' Craft, Flagon-X. 128, built at Goole 1915. Yard No. 190 and the Beam Ex. Bickley Hall, Ex. Sternlight, Ex. 64 built Sunderland1915. Yard No. 306. All just swinging on the Oil Mill buoy at slack water. Hope this helps.
Regards, Robin.

The one between the Rodent and the Flagon looks like the Maloney, could be the Flanagan?
