Massey Shaw & Marine Vessels Preservation Society

The Massey Shaw is one of London's un-sung heroes on the Thames. Built in 1935, the fireboat served the London Fire Brigade for many years and also took part in the WWII 'Operation Dynamo' to rescue soldiers from the beaches at Dunkirk. It ferried 500 men to the warships and bought over 100 men back to England.

On Thursday, 31st March, after many months of planning, the Massey Shaw was lifted out of the water and transported by road overnight to Gloucester Dock to complete her restoration.
