Event description

Description

Tour this restored Harbour Defence Motor Launch (HDML) Medusa, the last of her class in sea-going condition. Medusa was navigational leader for Omaha beach at D Day and first Allied vessel to reach Amsterdam at liberation.

Medusa is recognised as being one of the vessels selected to represent the nation’s maritime heritage by her inclusion in the National Historic Fleet. The Medusa Trust, a registered charity, exists to preserve HMS Medusa, ML1387, for future generations and use her to provide benefit to the public who can experience what it was like to be on a small naval vessel of WWII. As well as the vessel they maintain an extensive archive of documents, photographs and records of all the 480 HDMLs and their crews.
