I took that photo. Got the exact date here if required. Also there on the same day were three old Helyer trawlers from Hull. I'll be pleased to upload my contributions presently. Great forum.

Date was May 22nd 1972. Trawlers noted at the same time were Loch Doon, Loch Leven and Brutus. Tees dale H was burned out at Jarrow Oil Wharf.

Hello Rivoldini

The photo was sent to me as the webmaster of the Tyne Tugs website. Unfortunately I had a hard drive crash on my last computer. I had all the photos and data backed up except for my email files. So I lost all my carefully saved and categorised emails which would have identified who had sent me the photo. I apologise for forgetting your name. Thanks again for the photo.

No problem. It's a two-way street. I'm gratified to see one of my photos reproduced to share with other members. Carry on the great work.
