One of two photographs of a floating dry dock at Portsmouth.

Can anyone identify which one? My best unconfirmed information that this is AFD 5, built in 1912, which was destined to be moved to Alexandria in 1939, but only got as far as Malta where she was sunk.

Anybody able to identify the tugs?

The tug alongside the starboard side of the dock and the stern tug are members of the Dromedary class, which two I cannot say but from memory Dromedary and Volcano were stationed at Portsmouth, both were built in the late 1890's, say 1895.

Paddles independently driven by apir of 2 cyl compound steam engines and two coal fired cylindrical boilers. Total power 1,250 ihp BP 9 to 10 tons and ten knots free running speed, paddles could be clutched together by a central dog clutch for normal steaming. crew 18 men
