7.30pm to 9.30pm, Monday 4 October 2021
Tonbridge & Tunbridge Wells Group would like to invite you to our The Paddle Steamer Medway Queen Clubnight talk.
Built as a paddle steamer in 1924 The Medway Queen operated from the River Medway as a pleasure craft. During WW2 she saw service as a Minesweeper patrolling the Dover Straits before evacuating troops from Dunkirk.
Post WW2 The Medway Queen returned to the River Medway in her former role as a pleasure craft and retiring in 1960.
After a spell of deterioration and abndonment she was moved back to the River Medway where preservation and reconstruction began which are continuing to the present day.
We look forward to seeing you there.
