Hi All,
The rear of the craft has very similar lines to the original Blue Bird K3, but with a much reduced drought. Does that help any?
Regards to all, Fred

You must mean the bloody great big 'K7' on the side. What's that all about then?!

Hi Again,
It reminded me of a photo I acquired off the Internet last week, and then it hit me why. I thought "OUR" K7 was "K7", I'll go loo0k it up and come back.
Regards, Fred

Photo's of her from the 50's to how she's displayed now show her as K2.

Zoomed in on the higher res pic & it definately looks like a 7. The 2 is completely different to even resemble a 7. Can't repost the higher res pic as this site can't handle it :(

...even zooming in on the pics here, it's very obviously a '7'.

............. as these designations were from Lloyds for insurance purposes that "K-7" is quite clear on Miss England (or it is to me even if part of it does touch the circle) - so did someone in Lloyds issue the correct numbering to any of the craft which followed, including Donald's big blue boat ... ??

if you zoom in On Miss Great Britain III it is a swanky 2 more like a Z touching the outer circle the but have it your way, Perhaps he was pi--ed when he painted it :?
Got this pic in my collection which is much clearer and no I am not going to dig it out of the attic
