    HistoryTanac Class Tugs were small tugs designed during World War II for the British Navy. They were designed to undertake harbour service at ports around the world, and in particular designed to tow barges and lighters next to operational ships to supply the Navy with stores, ammunition and fuel. They also played a key role in salvage, fire-fighting and rescue. A large number of Tanac class tugs were built in Canada during the War.
