‘Our Lizzie’, like many of her film and TV colleagues, is undergoing restoration. A veteran performer she appeared in several films including ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’, ‘Dracula,’ ‘The Apple Tree’, and in every episode of BBC Television’s ‘The Onedin Line’.
However, these were not her most dramatic moments, for she was one of the ‘Dunkirk Little Ships’ playing her part in the evacuation of British Service Men almost exactly 76 years ago.
She has been resident at the IBTC since February and is in the hands of a highly skilled team who have already started on a long term project to restore her to her former glory. The initial work will all be structural, moving on to new decking and finally a new fit out.
