This photo from the 1950's shows the ships that were then moored by the Embankment. From the left :-
RRS Discovery, the ship used by Robert Falcon Scott on his 1901 - 1904 expedition, now a museum in Dundee,
The Wellington, a WWII convoy escort, now the home of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners.
HMS President and HMS Chrysanthemum. The latter two ships served in WWI and later became Royal Naval Reserve vessels.
Much has changed over the years, the only ship still remaining by the Embankment is the Wellington.
Come on board and learn more about the Merchant Navy in our #free exhibitions. The current one "Abandon Ship!" Is on now. We're open Sundays and Mondays 11-5.
