If I am wrong I should be disrated but I think LLANTRISANT is passing downriver off Gravesend with a Gamecock tug alongside,possibly ATLANTIC COCK..

Had you sailed in her? About forty years ago I worked on her as a rigger on Palm Charter and is possible it was only time she came into the London River.
If you had been in her I will check my diaries for her sailing date..

Hi lads we had a ship in dry dock in Hull K.G.D for bottom damage a good size job we then change the name from LLAHTRISANT to LAKE BURNABY after leaving dry dock the ship sailed with a Hull crew and went to TAMPA to load grain. some weeks later one of the deck crew started work back at the ship yard, and we all got talking about thinks and he told us he was one of the crew that went with her to Tampa but she aground and was a C.T.L. this was the one built 1952 Smith dock SAM

That photo was taken at Gravesend, right enough - from the Gordon Promenade, to be exact, named after General Gordon (of Khartoum fame) who was was at one time CO of the garrison that used to be here.
And unless I am daft (probable) and blind (possible) - and my 1967 'Ocean Ships' shipspotting book is wrong (less likely), that is the 1958-built Llantrisant in the poster's photo. As Burned Toast said in his last post, he sailed in her in 1965. The '52 one was sold and wrecked by then!
As to the tug, it could also be Crested Cock, Ocean Cock or Watercock ( the latter of 1925 build).
Although Gamecock Tugs, Elliott Steam Tug Co, and William Watkins Ltd, amalgamated in 1950 to form Ship Towage (London) Ltd, all these constituent companies retained their original funnel markings until 1965, when they were finally combined into a rather attractive combination of the three.
The funnel marking changed again (less colourfully) in 1969, when a ship towage monopoly in the Port of London was created by the merger of the aforesaid Ship Towage (London) Ltd with the rival W H J Alexander Ltd's Sun Tugs operation, to create London Tugs Ltd.
Since then, the 'foreigners' have moved in - one after another! First it was the Scousers - Alexandra Towing; then came the Aussies - first Howard Smith, then Adelaide Steamship (Adsteam). Now it's the Danes - Svitzer. It has all certainly been a bit unsettling for the many young Gravesend lads who sought a career on the river back in the 1960s.
And, Burned Toast, did you take that photo yourself? I would have thought that, if you had visited Gravesend, it would have been such an unforgettable experience that you would never have confused it with Hamburg - even 40-odd years on!
Cheers and beers!
Bob Scott (surprisingly enough, from Gravesend)
