Navy to open Gallipoli campaign's HMS M33 to public

The National Museum of the Royal Navy will open HMS M33 to the public for the first time in her history, following conservation works.

HMS M33 is the only surviving Navy ship from the Gallipoli campaign and was considered a lucky ship as she suffered no casualties.

The M33 was constructed and put into service in seven weeks, which meant she never got the chance to be given a name.

Lesley Wills explains how her grandfather served on M33 and ahead of the public opening, the restoration project's director Matthew Sheldon explains some of the ship's features.
