11th July 2018 – Convoy

Dr Phil Jenkins gave an interesting talk on the story of three convoys during WW2. The convoys included one transatlantic, one to Russia and one to Malta and each illustrated particular features of this critical series of battles. Enigma decrypts, radar and high frequency direction finding, escort carriers and various U- boat strategies against them were all discussed in the talk.

There was a good turnout despite the clash of fixtures with the England World cup game (England lost on in extra time).
