United Towing Hull
 
Did their vessels only fly the company flag to indicate ownership or did they use a funnel marking or any other marking/schemes to indicate they were United ships?

I'm curious as many companies seem to use funnel markings.

Usually white with black top
In later years Buff was introduced on some of the larger ocean tugs

That was the markings of what had become the North British Maritime Group
As you say a compass needle pointing north and red white and blue colours

Texelstroom ship early 1960's.
 
Does anyone have any information on the crew of the Texelstroom that used to dock in hull from amsterdam please?? My mum is looking for her dad who was a Boatswain (bosun) on the ship. We think between 1961-1964/65.

Thanks

Carla if you google this (hollandsche stoomboot maats.n.v.) you may get some help with your research. It is the Texelstrooms owners.
