GUEST NIGHT - HMS Alliance & the Submarine Museum
Tue 22nd August 2017 at 20.00
David Otley the Curator of the Submarine Museum will enlighten us on the exploits of HMS Alliance and other artifacts at the Museum.
Built at Barrow-in-Furness by Vickers-Armstrong and launched in 1945, HMS Alliance was one of fourteen ‘A’ class submarines built for service in the Far East during World War 2. Commissioned into the Royal Navy in 1947 Alliance had a long and distinguished career of over 28 years that took her all over the world. Alliance is the centrepiece of the Museum and is the official memorial to the courageous men who fought in similar boats for the freedom we enjoy today. The submarine experience is brought to life by a guided tour enhanced by the first hand experiences of retired submariners, many of whom served in this class of boat.
