The Medway Queen

The Medway Queen is the last estuary pleasure paddle steamer in the UK. Built in 1924 on the Clyde she saw service on the waters of the Thames and Medway in her early years and then on active service with the Royal Navy as a minesweeper in the English Channel. During her war years she became famous for her record number of crossings to the beaches of Dunkirk in 1940 rescuing 7000 men in seven trips.

The Association of Lighthouse Keepers

 

We are members of ALK, The Association of Lighthouse Keepers which provides a forum for everyone interested in lighthouses, lightships and maritime aids to navigation. Despite its name, being a lighthouse keeper is not a requirement for joining the Association, although a number of serving and former keepers are members. Whatever your interest in lighthouses, you can join the ALK!
