Battle of the Atlantic 70th Anniversary | Royal Navy

Each of the Armed Services is commemorating a WW2 70th anniversary in recognition of the genuine desire for veterans to mark the occasion; for the Royal Navy, including the Merchant Navy, this is to be the Battle of the Atlantic (BOA 70) in May 2013. We chose the BOA because it was pivotal to the success of the allied war. After the fall of Europe the main supply route for the continued prosecution of the war was between the United States / Canada and the UK via the North Atlantic. Ultimately, it was the success of the protection of this vital sea corridor by the defeat of the German Surface and U-boat threat that enabled the massive logistic build up that led to success in North Africa, at D-Day and then through to the fall of Germany.
