Toward a World

In the Spring I977 SEA HISTORY, Frank Carr of London called for a World Ship Trust. Here he reports on progress, including a note on the National Society's Ship Trust Committee, of which he is International Chairman. Other reports, which follow, discuss vital elements of the Ship Trust program. - ED. Opera tin g ra th er o n the lines of th e Wo rld W ildlife F und , th e W o rld S hip Trust wi ll see k to enco u rage by a ll possib le mea ns the prese rva ti o n o f histo ri c craft , bo th la rge a nd small , in a ll th e seafa rin g co untri es of th e ea rth . The prese nt positi o n is comparable with th a t of the Ma ritime Trust in its form a ti ve stages nea rl y 18 yea rs ago . It was in 1960, fo llowin g a trip to America , that I ca me to realise we were still not doin g an ythin g lik e enou gh here at home to preserve th e rema ining treasures o f o u r maritime heritage, and 1 sta rt ed ca mpa ignin g for th e es ta blishment of a Trust whi ch would do for o ur historic cra ft wh at o ur Nat io na l Trust wa s a lread y doing so success full y for o ur buildings. It was not , however, until HRH The Duke of E dinburgh took th e lead in 1968 th a t real prog ress was mad e. H e did thi s aft er presiding over a meeting held a t Buckin gha m Palace to consider th e prese rvat io n of HMS Warrior of 1860, Brita in' s fi rst a rm o ured ship, now b erthed a t P emb ro ke Doc k. Under his lead ership th e Maritime T ru st was es tablished , with th e Duk e of W estminster as its C ha irma n, in Februa ry, 1970 . So far as th e World Ship Trust projec t is co ncern ed , we have now fo r med a n acti o n gro up to d raw up a legal constitu ti o n a nd to see k o ffi cia l cha ritabl e sta tu s before callin g a public meeting and la un ching a n a ppeal for fund s. O verseas meanwhile, with our encouragement, the Dutch have fo unded a Netherla nd s M a ritim e T ru st; a nd in the United States, th e Na ti o na l M aritime Histo rical Society has set up a Ship Trust C ommittee, with m yself as Interna ti o na l C hairman . These a re earl y days yet, and we hope th a t in tim e we sha ll achieve o ur o bj ecti ves a nd o pen up a new era o f ship preserva ti o n o n a n interna tiona l scale .<!> SEA HI STORY, WINTER 1979
