Was looking for a new project and came upon this pic of what looks possibly to be a WW2 Tid Tug - Armed ? No expert on web searching but seem to draw blanks as only I.D is the nameplate EMP.PAUL. Any sort of help gratefully received. Tx
Hi al2612, and rather a pity that folks on here don't have proper names. Anyway, besides that try googling mountfleet models and mobile marine who have a reasonable range of tugs. It has to be an Empire tug, WW2 ish, have a crack at googling Empire Paul Tug. Regards, Gary.
Gary - have now got some details it would seem the description for the pic on the IWM website is incorrect as it describes it as a Tid tug - hence my searches were revealing nothing also now EMP makes sense - will start looking for suitable drawings plans etc - Tx Alan
Hi, I have just googled this and found a fair bit of info and photos, she has had her name changed many times, plus engines and super-structure. She was built on the Tyne in 1944, Newcastle area, and was broken up in 1992 in Ontario Canada. The photos are definitely worth a good coat of looking at. Regards, Gary.
