This MTB was a rather special boat as she was the first British Power Boat Co 71.5ft type to be built as an MTB (MKVI), i.e. with a short Admiralty bridge instead of the longer streamlined deckhouse (MKV). She was originally designated MGB 123 and later became MTB 446. There is a photo of her here;
DSMs were awarded to two of her crew, AB H.L. Bray and Sto R.B. Finch.
The boat apparently survived the war, nothing further I'm afraid.

My father frederick weldon served on mtb 446 as a torpedo rating. I met with the skipper who remembered my dad. I also met Jack Warnes who was the engineer. My dad's best mate was Blood Reid who lived in Wisbech I met with his son Lawrence. I have a photograph of 446 undergoing sea trials at Fort William and one of the crew which I think was taken at felixstowe or ipswich.
