Picture of the Wyola on the Fremantle Port site here:
Only one I could find of the Yuna is a rear view when she was the Zealandia of Watkins Ltd. of London. It's here on the Pamir site, bottom of page:
The Zealandia (Yuna) doesn't look like her at all, so I'll go for Fremantle and the Wyona.
Just as a matter of interest;
1) On the Fremantle Port (1940-49) site there is a photograph of the "British Cavalier" c.1945. Am I seeing things but isn't that a dummy funnel midships. Some type of disguise for the war perhaps, anybody know?
The site itself has some amazing photographs taken over the years.
3) Typing in "yuna+tug" into google comes up with some surprising results.
THE ORIANA IS ENTERNING THE PORT OF FREMANTLE AND THE TUG IS THE YOLA ONE OF SEVERAL STEAM TUGS OPERATING AT THE TIME . THE LOCATION LOOKS LIKE IT WAS TAKEN FROM A OR B SHED VICTORIA QUAY AS NORTH MOLE IN IN THE BACKGROUND AND THE SUN IS IN THE RITE POSITION FOR A MORNING ARRIVAL.
