The Thames at War
We had a fantastic day on Sunday 14th April, a huge amount of thanks to Richard and Frank at the lock and all the re-enactors, exhibitors, boats and vehicles who all came and made the event the success it was.  We had over 17,000 visitors and had so many lovely comments, thank you for coming.

We have been asked if this will be an annual event, at present we are unsure, but have no doubt if we do it all again, you will know about it!


Please contact us if you have any information on the Upper Thames Patrol, we will be developing a website dedicated to them.

We go out and give talks, please see our website www.doingtheirbit.co.uk.
