WW1 Tug HARDI
Looking for information on a WW1 tug based it Port Said 1914/1915. Possibly an ex-Suez Canal Company tug.
I have no information about Hardi other than that she was used by RN along Sinai coast. The following is from log book of HMS Proserpine, 21 April 1915 :
1.0pm: Tug HARDI proceeded out of harbour to search for lost aeroplane.
8.30pm: Tug HARDI arrived with lost aviators & one prisoner.
9.30am: Sent armed whalers crew to HARDI to salve aeroplane.
The entry refers to the recovery of a French Nieuport floatplane, N.16, which came down with engine trouble near Lake Bardawil.
There is clearly an interesting story to be told...
Think it is HARDI no107. Lots of info if you google it
Thanks, The Clyde Ships website has all the information I require.
