Introducing a New Board of Trustees for TSS Calshot

Following an Annual General Meeting on November 21st, a brand new Board of Trustees has been elected to take the Charity forwards.

Sadly this involves some Goodbyes, but also some Hellos.

Together, we want to extend our thanks to Associated British Ports, Southampton City Council and National Historic Ships UK for their continuing support.

We look forward to working closely with all parties, to explore and ensure the best possible future for the historic ship.

Steaming through Time: Her Story

The White Star liner Olympic, sister ship of the ill-fated Titanic. Cunard’s famous flagship RMS Queen Mary and RMS Queen Elizabeth. The Mauritania, SS United States, Bremen, France, the SS Nieuw Amsterdam. SS Statendam or the French Line’s flagship Normandie; each are just a few of the liners with which the Calshot regularly served and assisted in both peacetime and war.

This is a class of vessel, uniquely associated with the great ocean liners of the past.

She’s steamed into the heart of D-Day and facilitated untold servicemen during Europe’s eleventh hour. Her career has seen her transport the masses but also some familiar faces too, from Churchill to Bob Hope and Judy Garland. Britain’s heritage and Calshot are one and the same.

Yesterday, she was a gateway to peace and leisure, but ninety years after her construction the Calshot now rests in Southampton Docks with an uncertain future.

Hello, I read the times on Saturday 22nd - a great article about the Calshot Prompted me to look at your site. Obviously huge commitment! Sorry to hear that you're feeling nothing can be done to save the ship Could you explore with people who are more tech and communication savvy, young people in your families or friends perhaps - to use present the message from media coverage to reach people? Even crowdfunding can raise a lot of money
