Old Lifebelt
« on: September 16, 2018, 07:24:39 PM »
I acquired an old lifebelt and wondering if someone out there can help identify the print of maybe a vessel on the belt under old pealing paint. It reads Freight Endeavor reg London.
I have looked on Ship spotting and Googled a few companies with no result

Hello
I think this lifebuy is for use at a dock in London.
Could the Freight Endeavor be a Place ?

Lifebelt seems to match?

Thank you all for replies and esp Patrick Hill for info and i think your right. It looks like the vessel could be one of Deans tugs.

Hope they dont want it back. Te He ;) Its on my Garage wall
