From what I can glean it seems that “London Mammoth.” had a 150-ton capacity, although other sources suggest 200 tons – I do remember it being used to load a fairly massive transformer on to the Royston Grange in 1966, but memory fades with time and I cannot for the life of me remember what the weight was.

I believe her lifting capacity was increased to 200tons in her latter life. Tug colours (Ship Towage (London) Ltd) suggests picture taken 1965/69.
