Guided tour of Medway Queen 19/9/15

Medway Queen at Gillingham pier following her hull rebuild

Our crew

Nice deck but it leaks a bit!

The restored engine

The paddles are nearly complete, just a few more blades to go

Representing the 7000 soldiers it saved in 7 trips from Dunkerque

The new upper works

When finished she should look like this model

In wartime she had a shortened deck and portholes

A model of the engine


Also at the pier, LV21 now used for arts, education and performance

Bulheads have been removed to make an entertainment venue

The gimbaled light now hangs inside and still uses only 40 Watt bulbs!
