At the time of construction, the 2,300 bhp SIR DAVID HUNTER was one of the most powerful tugs in the world, built in 1915 by Ferguson Bros, Port Glasgow as an improved version of their 1913 LUDWIG WIENER, built for the same owners, the South African Railways & Harbours Administration, and was used as the design prototype for the Admiralty’s RESOLVE Class vessels.

With no data you'd not pick this as a 1915 design surely.

What a magnificent looking vessel. Sea kindly and no doubt an excellent towing platform.
The number of crew however would be huge.......I wonder how many they had as she would have been twin screw (?) and twin boilers.
Coal fired too.......
