Hi finally bought a new printer/scanner, problem was my old printer was I could not update the drivers to win 7 for the scanner. The Saucy is as she was when she was civilian manned under RFA conditions in black and buff colours and the Assidious after she was laid up for scrap after service under C.D. Gibraltar for fleet target towing again painted in Black and Buff with white or grey funnel band and lining. The Adherent is I believe the Diligent renamed Adherent in 1947 in 1047 when she relieved the Paddler Cracker at Sheerness, again painted here in Black and Buff, but she would have had C.D. Chatham colours of azure blue funnel band and blue lining around Bulwarks.

Here's my unfinished Storm King. I have drawings if you're interested.

John


It was later named Tryphon and worked out of Canada, Montreal I think.

Yes there is some options to consider here as the class as the whole must have been more useful than the Envoy class, as so many where taken over and used by various MoD depts for a wide variety of tasks after the war. There used to be several dept's within the MoD all civilian crews which had numbers or abbreviations for titles such as the D606 (who operated the salvage and mooring craft) another group under RFA pay and conditions I forget their title but their last vessels were the Roysterer and Rollicker which came into RMAS control. Some of these departments had no DTI qualifications required such as the D606 and CED tugs, others like the RNAD required DTI Home trade tickets with the Cable ships service requiring minimum of Foreign going Masters tickets as minimum, the qualification requirements depending if the vessel had a port of registry, as most like CED and D606 where not registered and the MoD was not subject to DTI regs and requirements.

I know this is an old thread, but anyone interested in the Assurance/Envoy class of tugs would really enjoy a movie entitled "The Key" with Sophia Loren, William Holden, and Trevor Howard. Shows the tugs underway and a lot of good footage of details.  :-))
