Dear Grendel,
 
Near enough right! :-))  Gas turbine to be exact, but, next stage of the Part, what model and what manufacturer??? This was a marine application turbine I add.

Hi Polaris.
Are these the words you are looking for??

The first gas-turbine-powered naval vessel was the Royal Navy's Motor Gun Boat MGB 2009 (formerly MGB 509) converted in 1947. Metropolitan-Vickers fitted their F2/3 jet engine with a power turbine. As the test was successful, the Fast Patrol Boats Bold Pioneer and Bold Pathfinder built in 1953 were the first ships created specifically for gas turbine propulsion.[

Dear Boneash,
 
Those or these will do! :-)) 8) {-)
 
F.2/3
Another attempt to solve the overheating problems resulted in the more highly modified F.2/3 during 1943. This version replaced the original annular combustion chamber with can-type burners like those on the Whittle designs. This appears to have solved the problems, raising the thrust to 2,700 lbf (12,000 N) in the process. However, by this time it was decided to move on to a much more powerful version of the engine.
 
Over to you :-)) :-)

there are a 2 pairs of rolls royce jet turbines at greenwich power station, they are an emergency power supply for the underground in London, the exhaust powers the turbines that generate the electricity.
so my guess to make is rolls royce.
