Please use this fleet list for all Alexander tugs built for them before they became (via London Tugs from 1969) part of the Alexandra fleet from 01/01/1975.

Hello Norman, good to hear from you, yes I do still have those photos from 2005 in my files!
However, she was not an original Alexander tug so she is not in this section.
We will have to open up a section for other Thames tugs .... Gaselee, Watkins etc. in due course.

We can start Tug Company boards for any companies that people are interested in, to be honest I was conscious of not 'overloading' with tugs all in one go, so was just waiting for the existing boards to fill up.
Perhaps Lamey would be a good one to do next.

Tell me when you are ready to start on Lamey's and will try to help with photies, do you know that the Lamey family all come from this area i.e. Appledore .
