Does anyone know anything about the vessel on the left of the pic ? The one against the pier with the flag on her masthead. Jimmy Hamilton

Jimmy, she looks very like the "Rosedale", which was owned in Heckness by George Kirpatrick and probably others(I'm not 100% sure of the owners). She was mainly sail, but had an auxilary engine, which I understand was unreliable. She lay at anchor below the Brims school at the beginning of the war, but I have no idea what happened to her after that.
