It promises to be one of the most memorable events in the Queen's diamond jubillee. A thousand boats sailing down the Thames. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be part of the River Pageant - so too will boats from our region including the MTB 102.

It has a distinguished history, carrying Eisenhower and Churchill when they were inspecting boats and ships preparing for the Normandy landings during the 2nd World War.
