Tug passing Nacton downriver from Ipswich.
Can anyone identify it please?
It cannot be the Sauria - she had the funnel extended as the mast.
The Sun XXII had cream masts and brown bridge - unless repainted.

Definately a "SUN" tug David. They normally carried their name on the back of the superstructure, can you "brighten" it up a bit?
