Inboard engine info (Old motor boat)

I've just acquired this "little" project to keep me busy over the winter. It was one of the tenders on the RMS Mauritania. Anyway, it has a massive old diesel in it and I'm keen to get some more info on it. I don't know much about inboard engines of the size/age so any suggestions/thoughts would be useful! Not sure if the engine is original (we believe the boat was built around 1939 which is when the ship was launched) - also not sure if the throttle has always been with this engine.
