The Sun XI, Sun X, Sun V, Sun XV and Sun XVI. From the 1920s to about 1959, my Grandfather was Master of the Sun VI. I believe that before this, he was First Mate on Sun X. Sun V, Sun X, Sun XI and Sun XV were veterans of Dunkirk.

Tilbury passenger ferry, from the number of characters in the ship's name on its stern, this appears to be Catherine. The other two passenger ferries were Edith and Rose.
