BRIGADIER 1961: George Brown, Greenock

Post by Deepol » Wed Dec 05, 2012 12:53 pm

Tug for Steel and Bennie. In 1976 she was renamed FORAGER to release her original name for a newbuilding at Troon.
Sold on later in 1976 she was renamed FORTROSE.
Don't have anything else on her after that unfortunately. Possibly she later went to Italian owners.
