Thank you to everyone who did something, however small, in response to our desperate emails to help save the paddle steamer Ryde from being broken up on the Isle of Wight.The

Germans claimed to have sunk her during her wartime exploits at Dunkirk and on the Normandy beaches, yet she survived, and is now considered to be of national importance

- one of only 200 ships on the UK’s historic register. Tragically, on the 70th anniversary of the Dunkirk evacuation,

she awaits the cutter’s torch. In late February a team, including experts from National Historic Ships, visited and surveyed the vessel and found her to be in a frail condition. A decision is awaited on whether the Ryde can be saved in some form, if only as a cosmetically restored museum exhibit.The next few weeks will be crucial - more at www.psryde.co.uk
