A Heritage of Ships, by A McKee

A Heritage of Ships, A Regional Guide
by Alexander McKee

Alexander McKee, historian, diver and underwater photographer is best known for leading the team of amateur divers (including John Bevan) from the Southsea BSAC who spent 20 years searching for and eventually finding the Mary Rose. John Bevan’s admiration and respect for ‘Mac’ (as he was known to his friends) is reflected in his comprehensive collection of McKee’s books of which this is one.

From warships and steam packets to lifeboats and canal barges, McKee describes where they were built, their careers afloat, and their story in retirement in maritime museums.  More than 20 museums are covered in detail. At the end of the book is a complete list of all the ship museums in the British Isles, including those not covered in the main text.
