Tenace A669
French navy tug.
Paid off 1 Sept 1971
13 Jan 1972 condemned as hulk Q490

All French warships once paid off are immediately given a hulk (Coque) number.
This is the letter Q followed by 3 numerals, the vessel then becomes known by that.
This enables the name to be allocated to a new ship if needed.

In fact the current French navy tug Tenace carries the same pendant number as this, A669.
