Medusa 2016

Postby Brian Holmes » Wed Apr 27, 2016 8:19 pm

Medusa HDML 1387 is currently at Saxon Wharf in Southampton for her annual slipping and will go back in the water on Friday.
Pictures taken on Monday showing what can be achieved in a day.
She needs to look particularly good this year as she is being chartered by Warner Brothers to take part in filming their new movie "Dunkirk"

Hi there,

Many thanks for these great shots of her at Saxon wharf, I am delighted to hear you are going to be part of the new Dunkirk film, sadly we have heard nothing at the Paddle Steamer Medway Queen, albeit of course we are static, and our friends with Steam Tug Challenge are not going...but sorry, not for a moment detracting from Medusa, as I say, fantastic news and as ever the very best to her and the team.

Docking complete, Medusa heads back to Gosport.

On the way we have a mini fleet review when we go and visit RML 497 at Hythe.

A few pictures from Medusa's visit to Dunkirk.

We were there at the anniversary of the evacuation and the British Consul invited us to the ceremony where we stood on the right of the line as guests watching the official wreath and the Poppy Wreath being laid, and hearing both national anthems being played.
