May 1957. Tug Grappler. May have been a paddle tug

If this was HM salvage tug Grappler it was a paddle tug. There are pictures on the internet. See here http://sussexhistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=9015.0

Thanks Longpockets
At this stage-1957- as a 16 year old I had stopped visiting the yard so missed seeing the Tug. Can I go back in time Smiley

my last post--HMS Superb
There is what looks like a large shed moored alongside
But of interest is the 2 paddle steamers, presumably being used to transport personal

Can anyone identify the place or the steamers ??

I think it may be when she was being fitted out on the Tyne, the steamers are possibly transporting the dockyard workers out to the ship. There is a photograph here http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk/S-Ships/superb1909.html of a similar view from a different angle which appears elsewhere on the internet as a photograph of Superb on the Tyne.
