Info: A storm damaged P.L.U.T.O.Conundrum aground at Greatstone. Following successful trials with a large prototype in early 1944 five conuns were commissioned to a modified design. The new drums of 30 feet diameter were fabricated in Scunthorpe, erected in Tilbury Docks and launched into the Thames.
