Alcumus SafeContractor is a third-party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice. The Safe Contractor Accreditation will allow us to access and work on sites that we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to access before.

LCT 7074 is the last surviving landing craft in the UK. ML (UK) are proud to be restoring LCT to her former 1944 configuration where she is due to be displayed at the D DAY Museum in Southsea when works are completed in Spring 2020.
We were delighted to see the official reopening of ‘HMS Alliance’ to the general public last week with Martin Hobson (Project Director) attending the re-opening ceremony. He said it was a pleasure to see how much all the staff and submarine veterans appreciated the effort all involved had taken. Everyone should be very proud of what has been achieved for the future of the boat and museum.
Great to see her in all her full glory with the flags out and the sun shining!
We have recently completed the restoration of HMS Alliance a 1945 submarine at the Royal Naval Submarine museum in Gosport.
This project has been a long running project for us, which has been very rewarding, in we have managed to restore the exterior of boat to her former glory for many generations to come making her a long term display for the future of the museum as well as being a fitting memorial for the thousands of submariners who lost their lives.
