Endeavour 007

In a rather strange book about Southend during the war years, it is suggested that Endeavour was used as a secret service boat carrying out under-cover work!

Without being too specific, it is said that there is a belief that she was slipped into the shallows of France at night to allow engineers to check out potential landing sites for D-Day. There are well authenticated reports that such checks were made by Royal Engineers, but was Endeavour involved?

We doubt it, but someone out there might know.

The suggestion that LO41 should be painted over and L007 substituted is not being taken too seriously!!!
