Ian Caskie, SS Great Britain Volunteer

SS Great Britain: From Launch to Relaunch

Ian Caskie is a former Head teacher and has been an SS Great Britain volunteer for 12 years. To celebrate 50 years of the SS Great Britain being back home in Bristol, Ian will share the ship’s remarkable story from her original design through the different phases of her working life. He will also describe her incredible salvage and return to Bristol in 1970 and finally her restoration, preservation and ‘re-launch’ as a multi-award winning museum of international renown.
