Do 17 port provide tugs and crew for bearthing of RFA ships or are these tasks carried out by tugs from pompey dockyard????Do the army have any tugs???

We have work boats, which can act as tugs, but they are not man enough to shift the RFA ships that come in. Besides, the RFA ships are generally able to come alongside un aided unless the weather conditions mean they need a little help. The RN ships that come in, such as HMS Daring a few weeks ago, generally use the civvy tugs from Southampton.

The work boats are used for the ammo barges and dumb mexe rafts as well as fire cover.
