HMS Medusa 

 This talk will be on Zoom only

HMS Medusa is the last original, seaworthy example of 464 Harbour Defence Motor Launch vessels built for the WW2 Royal Navy. Her story starts in 1943 with a critical role at Omaha beach on D Day through to taking the surrender of Ijmuiden in Holland, then post war as a survey vessel and a new civilian life from 1968 to the present.   Alan Watson, who has been with her for 25 years and her skipper for 9, will tell the story of this brave and lucky little ship.
