I was there in that era but can't recall a twin funeler, or is that another tug in the background, a sister of the same company,( a la steam?) definitely a trick shot! must have a history! lol.

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.
