As promised, here are some details of the second model on display on the 6th floor of Chambers Street Museum.
(Well worth a visit anyway if you haven’t been, as they have done an excellent job of the refurbishment, and that is high praise indeed coming from an old curmudgeon like me who is rarely in favour of changes!)
The legend beside the model says:
Salvage Tug Bustler designed and built by Henry Robb Ltd, Leith in 1942, was one of eight built for the British Admiralty to tow damaged ships to safety. The company set up in 1917 and closed in 1983.
If you’ve spotted the mistake you will understand why it’s important that the book gets published soon before more similar errors change the history of the yaird by default!
