HMRT Superman was a British Rescue Tug that discovered the Whale Unit that the Partridge had been towing to Normandy.  Her crew were able to tow the Whale Unit so that it could be used to ferry equipment to the landing force.

The ship doesn’t figure prominently in the story of the Partridge but it’s great to see a photo. ┬áThis photo was taken off Harwich around 1940.
