"The family of Sir James Miller, the former Lord Mayer of London and Lord Provost of Edinburgh, donated half of the cost of this second schooner. She was named after Sir James' son who was tragically killed in a car accident at a young age. Her keel was laid in on the 23rd of March 1967 at the Aberdeen yard of John Lewis & Sons. She was launched on the 5th October 1967 and commissioned on the 10th of March 1968. Almost identical to her elder sister, she differed mainly in having slightly larger crew accommodation and square topped doors while the Churchill had round topped doors." from website http://freespace.virgin.net/scott.kennedy1/history.html
