Very informative tour that gives you a piece of WW2 history. Amazing story of how it was found and restored by a very dedicated group of retired navy men. Our tour had people of all ages and they all seemed quite interested in the story.

Wonderful historical piece of equipment that everyone should see. See what our fathers and grandfathers used during the war. It's great that this piece has been saved and put on display!
