Photo of BP Guard attached under her original name of Farahmand. She was launched in May 1950 by Ferguson Bros of Glasgow for BTC & completed in August of that year. In 1955 BP renamed her BP Guard. In 1975 BP sold her to Gulf Shipping Co. of Iran & she was renamed Farrokh. She was removed from Lloyds register in 1998 as her "continued existence was in doubt."
Unfortunately, I don't have any photo of BP Warden but she was completed in 1951 by Scott & Sons, Bowling for BTC under the name of Firuzmand. She was renamed BP Warden in 1955. In 1976 she was sold to Gulf Shipping Co. of Iran & renamed Firouzmand. She was removed from Lloyds register in 1998 as her "continued existence was in doubt."
Hope this is of some help.

many thanks for the reply, and the information, the photo is just excellent, the last time I saw these tugs and went aboard them was when I was 12!. When I have enough info I am going to do a website about them. All the best, Gordon.
