Friday photo - Flying Hurricane

11:52 AM

August already! A new month means a new batch of Dan McDonald photographs and we're now onto the 'Fs'. So, today's photo is of a tug called the Flying Hurricane.

She was originally built by Clelands (Successors) Ltd at Willington Quay-on-Tyne and launched as the Empire Thistle in 1941. This picture shows her working for the Clyde Shipping Co Ltd when she was renamed the Flying Hurricane sometime after 1946.

The rest of the 'Fs' will be added to our flickr account very soon.
