The Ross Revenge Support Group has been awarded the 'Marsh Volunteer Team Award for Historic Vessel Conservation' by the Marsh Christian Trust at the National Historic Ships UK Annual Awards Ceremony.
The award was made in recognition of the work undertaken on the restoration of the vessel by many volunteers over the years and the present day restoration team.
The MV Ross Revenge has an amazing history going back nearly 60 years, having had a significant role in the British fishing trawler fleet until the 1970s and then as Radio Caroline's offshore broadcast base from 1983. The Ross Revenge is now is the only surviving historic radio-ship in the world.
George Johnson from the Ross Revenge Restoration Team and Radio Caroline presenter Steve Anthony collected the award at the ceremony held at the Queens House, Greenwich.
