Resolve Naval Tug Kit (7024)
Due to the depletion of the naval tug fleet during the 1914 - 1918 war, the Royal Navy decided to replace the older tugs with several classes of purpose built naval tugs. Largest and most powerful of these were the 'Resolve' class. Resolve was fitted with a quick firing 12pdr. gun for defence when on convoy duty or coastal tows during war time. Resolve remained in the Royal Navy until 1950.
