LATEST PHOTO'S

 
From an old postcard of Ramsgate a quartet of Watkins tugs laid up in the harbour. The outside tug is Palencia [name just readable on the original]. Inboard of her is almost certainly Fabia with the cowl topped funnel. Next in is probably Canada and on the wall could possibly be Scotia. Photo probabably taken in late 1930's.
 
 
 
Following Photos kindly supplied by Mike Houckham of Thames tugs in Ramsgate Harbour or on Claxtons slipway.
 
 
JAVA on Claxtons slipway.
 
 
A Gamecock tug, possibly Watercock, entering the inner harbour at Ramsgate obviously having just come off the yard and sporting a shine worthy of a model tug.
 
 
One of Watkins "Teddy Bears", possibly Java on Ramsgate slip.
 
 
 
Two shots of maybe GONDIA in Ramsgate.
