Steam Tug Brent, Essex
Steam Tug Brent is berthed at Maldon, Essex with a collection of Thames Sailing Barges. Brent is the last surviving steam vessel of the Port of London Authorities fleet. In 1942 tugs were urgently needed for War duties both in the U.K and overseas and the British Admiralty requested the construction of a standard ‘Utility’ vessel, which could be built quickly and easily.
The drawing was typed on A4 document paper back in 2016.
