Was an order from the State of Bhavnagar, this was for a single screw tug.

She had a length overall of 88 feet and 6 inches with a beam of 22 feet and she was to be the 21st in the long line of tugs built at Leith.

She was launched from the yard 12th of October 1935, at a time of full employment for the shipyard when they were building a lot more ships now with the world coming out of recession.
