Usually listed as DIRECTOR J (or JACK) LETZER, and sometimes DIRECTEUR J(or JACK) LETZER. I have not seen "DIREKTOR" before.

Another photo.

Hello

I am new to the forum and joined because I have an interest in H.S. 93. My friend Peter died recently and left behind an unfinished HS model tug that I had always supposed it to be Joffre. Browsing this forum I came across the term H.S. 93 and as that was one of Peter's names on forums I began to look more closely at the tug; I noticed some differences to the Joffre. I wonder if there are any more images and if anyone can tell me the colour scheme for pre or post war service?

Peter's build is to a very high quality and has a steam engine too. Though I am only a novice modeller and a steam virgin I am going to try and finish the tug in his memory .... I have enough sense to ask for help where needed; steam and paint for example.

If you can help at all it would be most appreciated.

Dave
