Re: French tug COSTAUD

Thanks Jan-Olof
That sounds like "scuttled by the Germans with explosives"

Re: Greek STYLIANOS 1941

Thanks for clarifying that, Aris.
I found your article very interesting, and with some useful material on some of the other ships involved.

Re: Greek STYLIANOS 1941

Silly me. Wrong war. I meant the WW2 Lloyd's books, and whether they mention STYLIANOS.

Starke-Schell doesn't mention the cause - Miramar has "ac/b" = "bombed by aircraft".

Re: Greek STYLIANOS 1941

Thanks Andrzej

That is helpful, but raises the question of where the Miramar data originated - perhaps Lloyd's war losses : the First World War : casualties to shipping through enemy causes, 1914-1918? Anyone have this?

Re: Yugoslav SPASILAC

Thanks Kriss - Andreas von Mach also comes with what looks like the right answer - something like: * ordered by Yugoslavia from Howaldtswerke Kiel * hull (at least) subcontracted to Janssen & Schmilinsky, Hamburg (Yd 681) [or was this a transfer by HW after 1/1/1929?] * J&S bankrupt 1928 and yard ta...

Re: Yugoslav SPASILAC

Thanks all - and for the Paluba website link - and it is all coming together now. Question: Are you sure about a Hamburg build? Howaldtswerke did not have a shipyard there until they took over the Deschimag ex-Vulkan yard in 1930, but SPASILAC was launched in 1929 (date?) and completed 4/1930. Or wa...

Yugoslav SPASILAC

Can anyone tell me what happened to the Royal Yugoslav Navy's rescue/salvage ship SPASILAC between 1939 and 1945? Also, I know that she was built at Kiel in 1929, but who was the builder? [later] Found more now - built Howaldtswerke, Kiel - but need date launched and Yard No 4/1941 seized by Italy a...

Re: French tug Fame

Do you have any source, other than Lloyd's Register, for her presence in Haiphong after 1904? LR is only as good as its sources. It will have known from the previous owners - and perhaps the French Government - about the change of hands in 1904. But there is no evidence in the LR entries of any new ...

Spanish tug RIO TURIA

From 1929 tug RIO TURIA ex-CAPTAIN A LETZER ex-HS 33 (built 1917 Ardrossan) was owned by Puertos y Pantanos SA, Bilbao. During the Spanish Civil War she was taken up by the Republican Coastguard as RIO TURIA (GCV 32). Reportedly sunk at some point (in 1938?) at Cartagena - later raised, repaired and...
