This small museum, stocked with model ships, houses the John H Marsh Maritime Research Centre (www.rapidttp.co.za/museum), a resource for those interested in South Africa’s maritime history. The main exhibit is about the ill-fated voyage of the Mendi , which sank in the English Channel in 1917, taking 607 black troops to a watery grave.
