FLYING CHILDERS

Clyde Shipping Co. tug off Port Glasgow in November 1977. She had been delivered the previous year from the Robb- Caledon yard at Leith.
Unlike some of her contemporaries to a similar design serving on the Forth and Africa she was not fitted with fire monitors.
Following a grounding at Kyle of Lochalsh in December 1995 and a prolonged layup on the Clyde afterwards she was finally towed away to the English South Coast for breaking up.
