The Speaker: Nigel Rogers, President of the Naval Historical Society-WA Chapter
Topic: THE BATTLE OF THE ATLANTIC
The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest lasting Battle of World War 2, from September 3rd, 1939 to May 7th, 1945, some 2074 days. The Battle ranged across vast distances from South America’s River Plate to the freezing Arctic Sea, through which allied convoys shipped vital supplies to the Soviet Union. Australia played a very significant role in the Battle which included many Royal Australian Navy personnel, who were involved in anti-submarine warfare (ASW), as well as the involvement of the Royal Australian Air Force.
