Hi Lads
I was on the MWT tug Empire Ariel, managed by Overseas Towage and Salvage stationed at Milford Haven in 1946/47 when the American built tug Nancy Moran also managed by Overseas Towage and Salvage visited. We got to know the crew fairly well. I heard later that she foundered with all hands. Would any of you tugees know anything about this?

That would be Nancy Moran 2 as this was supposed to have happened around 1947. Thanks

Nancy Moran 31/5/1946 sank in the Channel off the Goodwin Sands afer a
collision with a tanker.

Thank you Pete. It sounds like it would be her. The time is about right. Would any one know the name of the tanker?
