This is Watkins Cervia [1], photo probably taken at Methil in 1941.

Two tugs now in the Gravesend fleet but the picture shows them at Immingham in Sept 2001 when they were working for Howard Smith. The other photo shows 10 tugs of the Howard Smith fleet based on the Humber and I think there were another 3 / 4 outside the lockgates on stand-by, a tug-spotters paridise ;) ;) ;)

Two tugs now firmly part of the Thames fleet operating for Svitzer at Gravesend voith tugs Svitzer Laceby and Svitzer Cecelia. Photo was taken beginning part of Dec 2016 ironically the photo which I sent in July 2012 shows the same two tugs moored up in Immingham dock but the Laceby was then operating under the name of Lady Anya and were also in the Howard Smith livery.
The other photo attached was taken from the new Damen tug Svitzer London looking back and shows the two voith tugs Laceby and Cecelia and also the former Bristol tug Svitzer Brunel.
I hope there of interest.

Regards

Former Thames tug Svitzer Mercia photographed at Avonmouth dock today she's been based in Bristol for a few months now and I think she's also the first voith tug to be based here for a long period of time.
