On the 20th April, 4 members of the Light Vessel Historical Society gave 4 talks on board Light Vessel 21 at Gillingham pier, Kent. Discussed was new information regarding the secret history of LV21, and its unique experimental role during 1944 at the East Goodwin Station. With the help of documents recovered from archives (see examples below), diary entries and personal effects from the former crew, the story was revealed, questions asked, and information based on current findings divulged.
Although the proceedings were interrupted by a group of ‘artists’, also on board the vessel showing their doodles, the talks were a success and well attended.
The images below will provide some insight into a truly riveting event:
