USN P22 US Navy Gun Boat

Thursday 6th and Friday 7th September 10am – 4pm

USN P22 is a United States Navy Gun Boat which was built by a German shipbuilders shortly after WWII for the American military to patrol the river Rhine during the “Cold War” era. The gun boat is the only one afloat out of a fleet of 23 of this model.

After being decommissioned by the American military, it was handed back to the reformed German Navy to continue Rhine patrol. After a number of years it was then decommissioned and bought by a Scottish-based private company where it fell into disrepair and partially sank, only to be saved by a private individual for its posterity and historic value.

It was used in the blockbuster war film Dunkirk.

Access is limited around the Harbour. Toilet facilities and parking close to site.
