The Puffer VIC 56

On picture #345 , John Maclaren has made an enquiry about the whereabouts of the Puffer VIC 56, and here she is!
I took this shot from the South bank of the Thames somewhere between Canary Wharf and the Woolwich Ferry in September 2004. I had no idea at the time that this old boat had an Invergordon connection but how wonderfull to find out! I will try to locate the site more precisley and let the site administrator know. I was very surprised to see the boat here. The only other one I am aware of is located on the Crinan Canal.

Puffer VIC 56 is nowadays berthed at Chatham in the Medway River. She can be visited there and even has her own website! (www.vic56.co.uk/). However, there is no mention of Invergordon in the history section of this site; perhaps someone can enlighten us?
