Grahme, you have some great photo's! Thanks for posting . Jason is being helped by Melbourne tugs, James Patterson for'd and Marimba aft. Marimba was not as well knowm as other Melbourne tugs, not sure why. She was licensed to carry a number of passengers but to my knowledge, never did.

Does anyone know what the other Bluey is ahead of "Jason"?

Regards, Roy.

Although it looks a bit large to me, if the white box abaft the funnel is part of the super-structure it would point to Agamemnon class' radio room and 1st R/O cabin.
Agamemnon and Idomeneus were both on the Singapore Australia run in the fifties.
