An original Dunkirk 'little ship' that has been converted into a historic home has gone on the market for £300,000

***EXCLUSIVE*** The MV Gainsborough Trader took part in Operation Dynamo, ferrying troops from the French beaches under heavy fire in May 1940. The 70ft Humber Keel cargo vessel was originally a barge for transporting coal and flour. It was requisitioned by the Royal Navy in 1940, when it was called MFH (Master of Foxhounds), and made repeated trips to Dunkirk. At first it took some of the thousands of stranded soldiers from off the beaches to the larger vessels. It was then ordered to the Mole to pick up 140 exhausted troops and take them back to England. It was one of the last boats to leave the Mole under fire. After Dunkirk MHF returned to work and was a parcel boat in the 1960s. It was saved from the scrapyard in 1995 when its then owners converted it into a house boat with three bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room and lounge. But they also made sure its Diesel engine was in good working order so it could be taken elsewhere. The current owner bought it in 2011. A year later it took part in the River Thames flotilla of 670 boats to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, an event that set a Guinness World Record for the largest boat parade and saw an estimated one million spectators on the banks of the river. It even sailed back to Dunkirk to mark the 75th anniversary in 2015 with about 50 other 'little ships'. The Gainsborough Trader is currently moored at South Dock Marine in Southwark, south London. Its interior has traditional wooden fittings with brass portholes and instruments. The galley includes a fridge, freezer and dishwasher, a saloon with a woodburning stove, a dining room which seats eight and a bathroom with double sinks and a Victorian-style tub. A registered National Historic Vessel, she is also a certified Dunkirk Little Ship. Catherine Carpenter, director of Zeewarriors Brokerage, which is handling the boat's sale, described it as a 'piece of history'.

An ancient gold ring found by a metal detectorist and thought to belong to a flamboyant Tudor lord has sold at auction for £57,000

***EXCLUSIVE*** The finger ring is at least 420 years old and was most likely owned by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, and a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I. It was found by metal detectorist Tomasz Krawczuk in a field near Castle Hedingham in Essex. The land was owned by the de Vere family for centuries and was one of the dynasty's principal seats throughout the medieval period. The sold gold ring has a carnelian gemstone with a bearded male profile bust on it, which is believed to be a representation of Edward de Vere styled to look like an emperor. De Vere was a favourite at Elizabeth I's court but was considered unsuited for any responsible office as he had a volatile temper. He was a champion jouster and travelled throughout France and Italy in pursuit of fame. The stone and craftmanship of this ring is Italian and was likely commissioned by de Vere during his Grand Tour of Italy between 1575-76, when he was 25. He was captivated by Italian fashions and introduced many luxury Italian items to the English court and made them fashionable. Mr Krawczuk found the ring in December 2018 and it was declared treasure under the Treasure Act. The ring went up for auction at Essex-based TimeLine Auctions with an estimate of £15,000.

Retro games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders are proving more popular than ever as bored Brits turn to classic entertainment in lockdown

***EXCLUSIVE*** In a difficult year when many businesses have struggled to stay afloat, The Games Room Company has found business is booming. People who have been stuck at home with little to spend their money on have invested in the arcade games and fruit machines they are missing from their local pubs. The company, which specialise in restoring classic video games, pinball machines and juke boxes, say the 'Stay At Home' rules have seen more people look to introduce some fun to their houses. With arcade-style machines ranging in price from £170 to £22,000, buyers are seeing the trip down memory lane as an investment.

Mr Walder-Smith joined the business in 1990 and diversified the company to move from commercial to retail as well, and introduced a restoration element. The business shifted towards bespoke high end pieces for individual clients and celebrities and has steadily grown in its niche market over the last 20 years. Now he has a team of about 30 staff including six in-house engineers who have honed their specialist skills. Mr Walder-Smith, 49, said: "We do a lot of 1970s and 80s video games, classic machines like the original Space Invaders and Pac-Man.

The only surviving tennis ball manufacturer left in the western world has created a world-first completely recycled ball

***EXCLUSIVE*** Price of Bath, the only British company still going after most companies moved production to the Far East, has spent the last ten months developing the Phoenix. The one-of-a-kind ball is made from recycled old tennis balls, including the cloth, with zero waste and still produces a tournament-standard product. The family business, which has been going since the 1930s, decided they wanted to tackle the environmental impact of the sport and stop  millions of balls from ending up in landfill. Since they put in the patent in June last year, they have carried out extensive testing and tweaking of the design and are now waiting for ITF (International Tennis Federation) approval so it can be used for tournaments. They have also launched a subscription service where players can send their old balls back and get them replaced with new recycled balls, safe in the knowledge that their returned balls will also be recycled. The process involves chopping old balls into little pieces and grinding it to almost a dust, then using a special secret treatment to help prepare it to be turned into new balls. Director Louise Price said: "We have been at the forefront of tennis ball innovation for three generations and I am proud to be launching Phoenix, a world first tennis ball and subscription service that reduces the environmental impact of our sport, is made to the highest tournament standards and is also safeguarding manufacturing jobs in Britain.
