This is a sponsored blog with the aim of raising £7000 for the Medway Queen. The ship's crew estimated they had saved 7000 men so that is just £1 for each soldier. Over the coming days this account will be updated on a daily basis to record events in the evacuation from the perspective of HMS Medway Queen’s crew until 5th June. If you find this account interesting please support us. Covid-19 has wiped out our regular visitor income and the Ramsgate event would have generated considerably more than that if it had taken place. A £10 donation is less than £1 per post! We are all volunteers so any purchase or donation directly benefits the ship.
