Comment on "Recording the changing face of Benfleet : Part Two"

Regarding the photo, ‘Former light ship and yacht club HQ’, I have been comparing several photos I have, and I now believe that the photo is of an Irish lightvessel, originally named the Cormorant, and renamed lady Dixon and was brought to the UK and was at Pitsea marshes c1962,
Here is a photo for you to compare, you will see the protective guard rails around the lantern , the access ladder ( your photo on the website has men on it) and the deckhouse construction is the same.
