It seems likely that Felicity was part of the Warwick Neck fleet delivered in 1926. I have a theory that she was Felix, hull number 972, based on the similarity of the names, and on the fact that she was purchased in Greenwich (near Warwick Neck) in about 1966 with no plaque but named Felicity. I have a web page devoted to her, http://www.whmsi.com/jim-newman/felicity/ .
