War & Trade focusses on the Merchant Navy’s contribution to the First World War covering all ship types and the human stories involved. We have again secured generous support from the P&O Heritage Collection both in advice and skills as well as artefacts and the exhibition will major on five ships, each of which has a unique story, and will also cover trawlers, coastal shipping, convoys, repatriation and the Tenth Cruiser Squadron which was heavily dependent on merchant ships and merchant seamen.
Running from 15 July to 11 November 2018, the exhibition is open on Sundays and Mondays ONLY, from 1100-1700 (last entry at 1630) and free of charge. All are welcome on board and tours of the ship are available during the Sunday opening hours.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SHIP WILL NOT BE OPEN ON 20 August, 1st October or 5th November
