H.M.D. BEN AIGEN WK.245
1914 - 1918
Motor drifter BEN AIGEN WK 245, requisitioned by Royal Navy, in Lerwick Harbour. She was commissioned into the Navy in November 1914, and served as H.M.D. Benaigen. Was armed with a 6 pdr. gun, her Admiralty service number was MB 160. Here she still carries her peace-time name, and is unarmed, although she flies the white ensign and is R.N. crewed - so photo probably late 1914. She was paid off in 1919.
