Lariat

 

__________

 

AT-130, an oceangoing tug launched 15 May 1942 by Livingston Ship Building Co., Orange, Tex., was transferred to the United Kingdom 10 August 1942 under the terms of the Lend-Lease Act and served the Royal Navy as Lariat (BAT-5). During lend-lease settlement after the war, she was purchased by the United Kingdom 17 September 1946. Lariat was subsequently sold to the China Merchant Steam Navigation Co. and renamed Ming-108.
