Wigeon or Widgeon in 1962

Help ! Does anyone have any information on a Royal Fleet Auxilliary called either Wigeon or Widgeon, which was working in the Clyde area in 1962 ? I am unsure of the name. I have no other information on her. Douglas.

RMAS Widgeon was a Boom Defence, Mooring & Salvage vessel of the "Duck" Class, along with Goosander, Pintail, Mandarin etc.
As such she was not an RFA.
