Description

We at the Paddle Steamer Medway Queen are looking to offer sleep overs on board the ship, to youth groups including local scouts, to show them what life was like aboard during WW2 and the evacuation of Dunkirk, when some 7,000 men were rescued, they will sleep on basic cots and use "ration packs", also talks about the times and how people lived then.

I am proud and privileged to have been part of the team on this project for some 30 years, we have saved and are restoring the Paddle Steamer Medway Queen, heroine of Dunkirk, but the main thing is the people, who were saved at Dunkirk, but also went on holiday, some meeting future spouses.
