The History of Leith

January 7, 2011

On the Thames

Vessels from Leith whose work lay on the Thames were also called into war service.
The ” George Salt,” a tug built some years before the war, experienced
the blitz on London, moving shipping and barges from danger points.
She was afterwards transferred to the Firth of Clyde, and there
gained the reputation of being a speedy little craft.
The hopper, ” Gallions Reach,” became a salvage vessel, in which capacity she did good work.
