A Trip on the Medway (2)

Our River cruise on the Medway took us past Chatham Historic Dockyard

Reminders of Chatham’s military history now blend into the environment
Old Dockyard sheds
HMS Cavalier, a destroyer launched in 1944 which served for 28 years in the Atlantic, Pacific and Baltic oceans.
The tower of HMS Ocelot, a submarine, shows over the dock wall. It was the last naval ship built in the Dockyard at Chatham. Launched 1962.
HMS Gannet, a sloop, built at nearby Sheerness in 1878. Used as a patrol and communications boat.
The Submarine sheds. Now used as repair shops for ferry boats.
