Well done Pete, you have worked on that history for a long time ! At least the families now have closure.
Regards, Robin W.S.S. Chatham.

Thames tug site is wonderful. The Dunkirk logs are truly fascinating. A lot of the barges I know well and have sailed on. Ena, Pudge, Tollesbury, Glenway and more. The crew logs bring such a vivid picture of those terrible times. Dover harbour must have been shear mayhem as well.
Thanks for sharing.
