The books have always proved to be the most popular of our products, often supplemented with a bookmark or other souvenir items. Modeller's plans too are a frequent choice and we look forward to seeing the results of those projects in due course.
"The Medway Queen" is a comprehensive history of the ship. Published in 2013 and reprinted in 2014 and 2020
"Rebuilding the Hull" is a behind the scenes account of the work done in Bristol
"The Medway Queen Club" celebrated the 50th anniversary in 2016 with memories of the popular club on the Isle of Wight.
"Memories of Dunkirk" was published in 2020 and over half the print run has already been sold.
The books are competitively priced and all are profusely illustrated but with very detailed text covering their subjects in full. Hopefully of interest to everyone. Each purchase contributes to the restoration fund and, if you give them as presents, they help to spread the word of what we are doing.
Our aim is to build a mutually beneficial relationship with the team preparing Medway's bid for the "City of Culture 2025" title. It will help their profile within Medway and beyond and it will help us, especially if we can link future restoration phases to their activities and timescales. It should be a win-win situation. "Watch this space" as they say although current social restrictions are going to hamper us for a while yet!
