British Oldies

Bericht door GEORGE ROBINSON » 30 aug 2016 17.20 18:43

I have a lot of photos on file of old British tugs, say up to 1960, if these are of interest here then I am happy to add some from time to time. A few may be Dutch built.
Some samples, first from the Thames, the fleet of Alexander famous for the 'Sun' tugs
