Mark Bathurst will speak on ‘The Medway Queen – the heroine of Dunkirk’

Paddle Steamer Medway Queen was built in Scotland in 1924, for the New Medway Steam Packet Company of Rochester. The Medway Queen is the last of the estuary paddle steamers that were built to take passengers on day trips on the Thames and Medway Estuaries, calling at locations such as Southend, Herne Bay and Margate.  At the outbreak of the Second World War she was commissioned into the Royal Navy and became a minesweeper, joining the 10th minesweeping flotilla, but she was so much more . . .

 

All welcome.  Doors open at 7pm
