In memory of Ifor Jones. A well loved Tug Master at Felixstowe. Saturday 10th June 2017
In memory of Ifor Jones. A well loved tug master at Felixstowe.

Ifor Jones was a man who took pride in assisting some of the world's largest container ships into the Port of Felixstowe.
Sadly Ifor passed away last month after a short illness. 

The tugs at Felixstowe took Ifor for his last trip on the Svitzer Kent with the Svitzer Shotley, Svitzer Deben and the Gray Test following behind.

As the tugs lined up in front of the Landguard Fort Ifor was laid to rest. The Svitzer Kent opened up their jets and blasted their horn with the other tugs following with their horns.
The tug masters showed their appreciation to a their fallen colleague/friend by swinging around while blowing horns.

All money made on this video will be given to the charity of Ifor's families choice.








A huge thank you goes to Svitzer / Maersk who organised all the tugs for this momentous day
Here is the final cut on the video that we developed for the UK Chamber of Shipping summit held this week.

The aim was not to develop a brand video but rather an "objective" video showcasing what we do and the value we deliver to ports, clients and other stakeholders.
