30th August 1954. Port of Le Havre. France.

The 20,500 ton Home Line liner Atlantic en route from Rotterdam to Quebec whilst entering the port in foggy conditions collided with and sank the tug Abeille No 4 which had a crew of 13 of whom 9 were lost.

Is it known Henk if your photo ( TT - Tug Talk ) is before or after this accident.
