I was placing them just because of the name.
What about these David?
Can you tell us something about these 6 smaller tugs?

I have no source for the these, but it seems likely that they are nothing to do with "Les Abeilles"
Perhaps later Suez company small tugs, or even some of Abeille 1-7 renamed
Whose navy were they minesweepers with - not listed in British or French navy lists - Egyptian?

I also couldn't find them David. I even didn't know of their existence. Maybe Jaap can tell us were he fond them?
I just wonder were others got the name Abeille from?
