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.

In later years Buff was introduced on some of the larger ocean tugs

Thumbs up 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.

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