A quick comparison of the vessel in that short video, in the web link provided by Christian, with gun boats on the web would suggest the 'sea witch' or 'sea wych' might be a 1915 type ML. built by elco (yes the american pt boat builder) for the Royal Navy.

I'm willing to bet there's plenty of yanks out there who would almost kill to get that 'missing link' in their pt boat history.
