Message from Margaret Flo Mcewan, founder of the Maunsell Seaforts Appreciation Group.
Ladies and gentlemen! We did it!! I am incredibly proud to confirm
that, this afternoon, exactly 80 years to the day, we reunited The Steam
Tug Challenge with Knock John Fort. The ship's horns sounded, Auld
Lang Syne blasted across the Estuary, champagne was drunk, cake was
eaten and many tears of emotion were shed. But it didn't stop there, on
our way back we couldn't resist another very special photo opportunity
at Redsand Fort. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Chris
Bannister, owner of Challenge and his crew for everything they did to
make today happen. And thank you to the always awesome X-Pilot: Kent's
Classic Pilot Vessel for being a fantastic photo vessel. More photos
and video later.
May the forts be with you!
