   Martin,At least with the 'Abeille XXll' I was almost there she was built in the same yard and in the same year...going by elimination I might have got there in the long-run ;D.(I also believe that she had three names as did 'St Osyth')
Some info I came across in my searching was that 9 'Saint class' rescue tugs were lost and one was actually sunk by torpedo attack...'St Issey' on 28th December 1942. Not a very nice Christmas for those poor fellows.
