A few  old photos of big old ex: RN steam tugs of WW1 vintage, that ended up here in BC Canada, both coverted to diesel power.
Both now gone to??
We had a Saint in New Zealand called "Toia" 1921 -54. Based in Wellington, she was ready for the big maritime disaster that never came. Had she been available in '68 when the "Wahine" got scuppered, she would have towed her out of trouble with no bother. Her successors were Empires, one only of which was available, and she didn't have the power. A local resident at the time that I knew well said that a few survivors got wound up in her prop in fact, which is a little known tragic fact.
"Toia" was scrapped in '55.
