December 2021 Lecture

From the event "The Battle of the Atlantic – the U boat perspective" which took place on 13/12/2021

Rear Admiral John Lang DL reflects on the perils of WWII. Churchill said “Battles might be won or lost, enterprises succeed or miscarry, territories might be gained or quitted, but dominating all our power to carry on the war, or even keep ourselves alive, was our mastery of the ocean routes and the free approach and entry to our ports ……. the only thing that ever frightened me during the war was the U boat peril.”

Each month we are pleased to welcome lectures from our friends and colleagues. Ranging from Maritime History and Restoration through to the work of the RNLI and todays Shipbuilding Industry.” Please feel free to enjoy these stimulating talks at your leisure.

A big thank you to our guest speaker Rear Admiral John Lang DL for such an interesting evening.
