Yantlet salvage vessel

By Richard Caldow

I am interested in the account of the sinking and salvage of the Magdeburg in 1964? I would be very keen to get a copy of the photo posted on this site showing  the salvage vessel Yantlet engaged in the salvage operation. I would also be pleased for any accounts of either this operation or others in which Yantlet was involved - I note one of its former crew has posted a comment so would be glad to hear from them. The reason for my interest is that I have a scale model of the Yantlet which came from the shipyard where it was built in Renfrew in Scotland. This model has been in my family since I was a child and I am trying to find out more about its working life.
