Carrier Tow Tractors
Photographs from Paul O'Reilly

The black and white photo is of a tow tractor aboard a Canadian manned British CVE, HMS Nabob. The photo was apparently taken in 1944 and since the carrier was built in a Puget Sound shipyard the pattern is probably USN. The two colour photos are from the air museum in Tillamook, Oregon and the sign on it says it was a USN tow tractor, era unknown.
