Same here FOOTSKI, I am obviously used to seeing the latest tugs and from my fond memories of being with my dad on the piers at Lowestoft & Great Yarmouth in the 80's, to see the older tugs really shows me how develpoments and changes have progressed.

Regards, Dan.

A trio of Rea Tugs.

The "Grassgarth" was one of the famous `Scotch` boats.....sister of the "Applegarth" famous for all the wrong reasons.  :(

Two more `North` boats.

Two `North` boats that I do not have photos of are the two diesel ones ie: "North Loch" & "North Isle".The others were oil-fired steam tugs. In all there were 9 boats with the prefix "North" (Alex tugs were affectionately known as the "Fliers" or the "North Enders" and their call sign by whistle/horn was `Blow 5`...5 blasts of the ships whistle.)

ST "BULLGER"  Leith Salvage & Towage Co.Ltd.

DoB.......1907 at Barrow as ST "CARTMEL"
Changed name 1934 to ST "BULLGER"

Mined 13th March 1941, 15miles North of the Tyne near Coquet Island.
(Apparently the mine were laid by the Luffwaffe.)

The Good news was that all hands survived.

Hi Todd,
Found a pic of North Isle But couldn't find one of North Loch.
Those guys were certainly lucky on the Bullger, one of Rea's tugs, the Poolgarth hit a mine when going to the aid of a ship and a bloke who saw it said there was nothing to be seen of her when the smoke cleared.
Cheers Fred
Fred, (I can't walk on water but I have staggered on whisky)

Cheers Fred.
I was on the Loch for a while and a funny thing about them was that even quite modern in those days they still had anthracite fires both in the galley and engineroom (for the central heating/hot-water systems.) The bunker for the anthracite was accessed by a man-hole on the after-deck.....a total pain in the "you-know-where"  :D
I have added the pic to my files...Ta once again
(Never satisfied were we...Going from bunkering twice a week (coal) to twice a month (oil) to once a month (diesel)  :o  ;) )

Back to steam again.

1) 'James Lamey'  quite a big Liverpool tug, just how big can be judged in the second picture with her young 'brother William' laying second off to her.

2) This photo was taken in the early sixties during the seamans strike. During this strike we were only allowed to berth ships and not to help them break strike by helping them sail.
