    I came across a small blass plate that reads:

    WATTS STEERING INSTRUCTOR
    PATENT No 11740-1913
    No 22

    It used to belong to my late father and I only re-found it recently. It may have come off the training ship ARETHUSA that used to be moored off Upnor in Kent, but I’m not sure. I haven’t been able to find out anything about this steering instructor; all I’ve seen is the patent itself (https://worldwide.espacenet.com/patent/search/family/032370906/publication/GB191311740A?q=191311740).

    Does anyone have any information on the instructor? If the brass plate can find a better home than a box in my loft, then I’d happily give it away.

    Thanks,

    Robert.
