Hi Everyone,
Does anybody know what happened to the River Thames tug owners ‘Gazlee and Son’? I was a apprentice Waterman and Lighterman onboard the ‘Agama’ based at West India Dock Pier. Just to remind you the company funnel colours were yellow with three red bands. The “opposition” at the time was Sun Tugs based in North Woolwich and Knights tugs which were the same construction as the Gazlee tugs. I left the Thames in 1958 to join the RN, the rest is history.
