loading for her final trip to breakers at London.

The tug alongside is the Cervia which I think was later preserved.

Yes, the CERVIA has been preserved at Ramsgate, Kent for a number of years. The council have not maintained her of late and her future is in doubt.
Cheers John.

She was ready for sea 1939 the day before the war started and immediately painted grey. Came through the war unscathed and completed sixteen voyages to NZ/Australia during which she delivered men and supplies to places such as Malta. The engineers had their work cut out to keep her going towards the end but she did last an exceptional 29 years.
