HMS President

Postby David Carter » Sun Jan 24, 2016 1:02 pm

HMS President on which many naval reservists were trained, including many who became officers and crews in coastal forces, is to be moved from the Embankment. See https://thameshighway.wordpress.com/201 ... -the-move/

Hi again,

Yes just seen this posted on face book, very interesting, colleagues from the Medway Queen society went aboard her sister HMS Chrysanthemum, thank goodness for a dictionary here, when she was broken on the Medway! sure hope not same fate for President of course, we salvaged some parts, doors and cushions to use on the MQ...as you say, not directly a CF ship but instrumental in training future men for the service.
