The tender of Mr Alfred Diss, builder and contractor of West Bergholt, Colchester, has been accepted by the Admiralty for the building of a new Coast Guard Station at Haven Hole, Canvey Island, near South Benfleet.

We know that the Coastguards were stationed in HMS Emulous prior to the building of the Coastguard cottages and you can read a little about the details we have discovered here.
