Naval Towage !
« on: January 30, 2009, 10:27:36 PM »

Found some interesting pics on Ship Nostolga site. Best one is a couple of steam tugs in colour, very evocative of the time any one any idea where it is , to me it is the Forth or Milford Haven anyone any ideas.

Correct me if I'm wrong - that's an old Leander being towed isn't it ?

Sorry but can't help with locations.

Could be, not sure, but I believe some of the class did pay off at Chatham for razor blades. What I am interested in is the colour paddler photo, as it reminds me of the Forth. I know they had the Swarthy there for some time, wondered if they are shufffling the grey funnel around to Inverkiething for razors. I am interested as I have for some time tried to find the port colours for the bulwark in PAS times.

I have just looked carefully at the LTCTC being towed away and I recognise the spit as you leave Garelock (Faslane). Looking at the coloured photo it looked like Scotish buildings. Never mind I hope the photo's are of interest to some people.

Perhaps she was re-named "Vulcan" and sunk in the Solent to act as a test bed for things that go bang in the night.
