Arrival in Glasgow- ANTILOCHUS
Clyde Shipping Co tug FLYING FALCON assisting Blue Funnel's ANTILOCHUS into Glasgow's King George V Dock in July 1973.
FALCON was completed by James Lamont at Port Glasgow in 1968. She became the Irish registered CATHAIGH in 1985 and was last heard of as BOUKU L in 2004 having been converted to a supply tender.
ANTILOCHUS was built by Harland's at Belfast in 1949 and as GULF ORIENT was scrapped in 1978.
At the stern is Cory tug CRUISER the former CLONMEL dating from 1959. She I think still sails as the Falmouth tug ST GLUVIAS.
