Alfred H. Howarth

Pictures of Alfred H. Howarth who served aboard the Ocean-Going Tug Flying Breeze during the First World War. (The first vessel bearing this name)
Photos & info from his son, John Howarth - if you have any more information about Alfred Howarth, or his ships, please contact me and I will pass the information to John.


Family – Looks like a family group taken when Alfred passed his exams as a Sparks.
 He’s the one on the right wearing the sea-going gear. With him are his brothers, sister, mother and father. Taken possibly around 1912-1915

Wireless cabin

Wireless Cabin – No date or any other details on this photograph of Alfred with headphones on, but it may be post 1918


Prahsu – Again no inscription or other details apart from the ships name on the lifebelt. Alfred is the one in the back row wearing the cap and smoking the pipe. The Prahsu was built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast in 1907 and broken up in 1931
