Unfortunately it does not look like we will be able to visit Chatham Dockyard this year - closest to that we will be on the International Army Show in the Netherlands (01-03/09).

 

However if anyone is close enough to visit the Chatham Dockyard, the Salute to 40's is a great event - been there last year and had a blast! Especially visit to HMS Cavalier is rather telling...

Such a shame, I will post some images of the event in the Off-Topic sub-forum, and hopefully other attendees from WOWS will contribute their special time at this years salute the 40's.

Thanks for the prompt reply @Tuccy

Sadly I couldn't attend that, even though it was only a mile from my home, I was in Northumberland at the time.

Medway tourist board are so poor, they have towns and a city that are drenched in historic background that other towns and cities would crave, but, alas hardly anything is promoted well enough, not only for locals but tourists too.

And there I was just blaming the stiff lipped Brits that they just didn't want to celebrate their loss with us Dutchies :Smile_hiding:

 

I would have loved some pictures of the tall ships and replica's sailing up the Medway, like with Sail Amsterdam I like that part the most. Especially if they are able to do so under sails.
