Lonely Planet review

This small museum, stocked with model ships, houses the John H Marsh Maritime Research Centre , a resource for those interested in South Africa’s maritime history. The main exhibition 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.
