    Ref.Robert's post # 15.
    That is a list of the ports visited when his father was on the ARISAIG; -Irlam(just up the MS Canal from Manchester)- Murmansk-Irlam-Almeria-Workington-Monrovia-Irlam.

    Your pic is of a 1903 tug called IRLAM of 165 tons built by J.P.Rennoldson of South Shields.
    I doubt whether she would have made it to the Bar LV-never mind Murmansk or Almeria ! (LOL)

    Robert I am pretty sure that it could be the Arisaig registered in Greenock, every entry in my discharge books, I have three of them, has the ships name followed by the port of registry.
