Britannia Goes to War.
January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am
From Naval Video Time Capsules, Episodes of the Royal Navy, we view Part 2 ‘Britannia Goes to War’.
Produced from rare archival film from the Imperial War Museum London, this one hour video profiles almost all the types of warships of WW2.
From Spithead reviews to the Home and Mediterranean fleets exercising off Gibraltar.
From the Battle of the River Plate to humble sea boat drill onboard the ill-fated destroyer Achates, from Chatham barracks to the Submarine base at Dundee, these scenes represent only a part of this extremely diversified program.
Join us at the Melbourne Naval Centre 146 W Toorak Road South Yarra.(opp. Fawkner Park).Building is open at approximately 6.30 PM and meeting starts at 7.30.
