I am Currently working on a family history project and am looking for information on the United Towing tugs 'Headman'; 'Yorkshireman'; 'Norman';*'Autocrat'; and 'Superman', crews, captains, any incident worthy of note upto 1945. Or anything regarding the Taylor family that worked on these tugs.

Information on the crew of HMS Boadicea, sunk 13th June 1944, again anything relating to the crew, photographs, anything really that is NOT currently available from the web (I have pretty much exhausted this route already).

I hope at some point to build a scale model of her (HMS Boadicea) so any photos (or preferably Hi-resolution digital copies) would be greatly appreciated.

I have the facilities to copy photographs and would return any origional images/documents.

Kindest regards to all,
