Townsend Thoresen

I like this shot, but I don't know why! in the 1980s for a brief period, Townsend Thoresen and RTM operated jointly and this shows the Prince Laurent exiting the Eastern Docks in the short lived combined livery. I feel this livery did nothing for the graceful lines of the Belgian ferries (pre jumboisiation!) but it makes an interesting study. Departing astern of her is a "Ton" class mine countermeasures vessel, of which we once had many....

The first of the "Tunnel Beaters" the Pride of Dover, seen in her introductory livery of P&O funnel and Townsend Thoresen hull. Seen here getting underway in 1988
