Light Vessel 88 was handed over to Trinity House, London, initially on Cockle station in 1936. The lightship was an oil lit ship with a lantern raised on the mast, which was a second-hand one from the earlier LV 26.
In 1950 she was converted to electric light. In January 1977 she was sold to the Norwich Sea Cadets for use as a Sea Cadet Corps training ship at Norwich and renamed the T.S. Lord Nelson.
In October 2004 the lightship was reported to have been berthed in Rochester.
