My pleasure, Lee.
Relief time for tug-crews was usually 0900 at the landing stage. At busy times, tugs would be berthed five-off (i.e. five abreast) at the stage. I think I'm right in saying that there were about sixty tug-boats operating in Liverpool in, say, 1965. Possibly more.
ps. I still have my Acme Thunderer. And my Dad's, too!
