Only the HIGHLAND ROVER survived beyond 1929 and Waterside Memories by Frank Drake talks about the HIGHLAND ROVER laid up in the Blackwater. HIGHLAND ROVER left the river 20 October 1932 to be broken up at Grays. The vessel on the right is believed to be CITY OF GUILDFORD.
Date: Before 20 October 1932
