IN THIS PHOTO ARE TUGS Smeaton and Sir Milne which I took circa 1978, in Malahide harbor, Co Dublin.

Smeaton and Sir Milne

If my memory serves me well, the Sir Milne towed the Smeaton down from Belfast. They were moored there for a number of years before, I believe, they were scrapped by Hammond Lane Ringsend Dublin. Can any readers verify my memories and give me a brief history of these old ladies, builders, engines, owners, dates etc.
