Since I first visited the Ross Revenge in Dover, I have taken a fair amount of video of the ship and Caroline events. With the aid of a video capture card I will put a few stills on this page from the video's.
This was the first view I got of the Ross Revenge. After seeing many photographs of her at sea, it did not seen right to see her trapped in Dover Harbour. We had travelled to Dover to go to the Caroline Birthday Party to display Melvyn's Ross Revenge Model . Albert Hood who organized the party drove us to the Docks to see the Lady. After the grounding on the Goodwin Sands she did not seem to be in the best condition.
Whilst on board the ship we met up with quite a large gang of workers scraping the paint and generally tiding the ship up. They were in fairly good spirits as during the afternoon they had managed to get the ships engine running for the first time since her days at sea. We had a good tour of the ship and after a couple of hours on board taking lots of video and photos we returned to the party for the evening.
