We now known that there were two JASONs.
The first built 1914 by P Boele, Slikkerveer (and sister of AJAX and CASTOR), which was brought to England in 1914, became the Admiralty RIVAL and may well have gone to Greece after WW2.
The second built 1916 by Jonker & Stans/Alblasserdamsche as already detailed here and which stayed in the fleet until 1951.

David, I don't believe in the first JASON for S.A.R.H. Think the company owned only one JASON, which was built by J.& S. (yardnumber 127) in 1916.
Boele, Slikkerveer built three sisterships the AJAX, CASTOR and POLLUX; resp. yardnumber 593, 594 and 595 in 1913/14.
All these tugs were scrapped 1950/51.

Sorry, Jaap, but that cannot be right.
- - SARH listed a JASON in their letter to the British Government of 10/12/1914. 200hp (along with AJAX, CASTOR and POLLUX)
- JASON and POLLUX were at Ipswich in 12/1914 and inspected by the Port of London Authority on behalf of the War Office, each described as c65t, 72'0" x 16'3", draught 9' 8knots
- JASON and POLLUX were to be taken up for Admiralty service at Sheerness 1/1915
- Admiralty paid hire to C W Kellock & Co (SARH agent) from 5/2/1915 until purchase
- Belgian-owned JASON was purchased by the Admiralty in 5/1915
This is all from contemporary documents dated prior to 1916.
Do you have a Boele yardlist? I would be interested to know what were Yd 592 and 596.

David, very interesting. I sent you an e-mail.
This must be almost correct:
ss. JASON (1) 1914-1914
1914, 58 ton, 200 ihp.
P.Boele, Slikkerveer (yardnr. 585/89 or 591).
Triple 3 cil.
Built for Emile Wauters, Antwerp ?
1914 JASON, S.A.R.H.
1914 JASON, War Office/Admiralty, London
1937 RIVAL, id.
1946 ALEXANDROS II, Nic.E.Vernicos, Piraeus
1976 scrapped by Ch.Karydis, Elefsis.

Yes, Jaap, I agree.

I also have her as being renamed Alexandros II, albeit in 1947.
As both David and Jaap agree on '46, that must surely be.
Returning to this tug Jason and subsequent renaming.
Jason was chosen as a name for one of the new Halcyon class minesweeping sloops for the RN, although on completion saw service as a survey ship, reverting to her intended role during WW2. Mercantile Jaslock in 1946 and bu Grays 1950.
Built by Ailsa, Troon. Laid down 12 Dec 1936 and launched 6 Oct 1937.
This existing tug Jason being renamed Rival during that period of construction.
