  1. Cunard

  12. WW1 Destroyer in Portsmouth Dry Dock

    Need some help identifying this one. Assuming it to be a British Destroyer, it is of 'Turtleback' design with a funnel code of either 31 or 39. Looks more like 31 to me, being of smaller diameter. Not close enough together for 30. So if a Class A, this would limit it to HMS Sturgeon or HMS...

Anybody able to identify the tugs?
