Help save HMS Alliance

 

HMS Alliance is a second world war vintage attack submarine that is now in dry dock at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum. And she needs your help!

Due to the very nature of Submarine operations they are often shrouded in secrecy and the men who serve in the Submarine Branch of the Royal Navy are not often given the recognition they deserve. The Alliance serves as a memorial to all those who have served in Submarines and especially the 5,000 who gave there lives for the freedoms we enjoy today…

 

By supporting the restoration of HMS Alliance you’ll be ensuring she is able to live on and provide future generations with the educational and moving experiences that I’ve had visiting her.

 

The Alliance Appeal has raised £1.7 million already and need to raise a further £100,000 by January 2011 in order to secure Heritage Lottery Funding (£3m) to start the restoration program.

 

You can donate online, it will only take a couple of minutes, and it will make a real difference.
