Battle of the Atlantic event guide

70th Commemoration of the Battle of Atlantic 24 – 28 May 2013 Liverpool Waterfront

The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest continuous military campaign of the Second World War and was pivotal to the overall success of the allied forces. To mark the 70th anniversary, Liverpool is proud to be the national focus for the commemorations and will host a series of events which will be a fitting tribute to the courage and fortitude of every man and woman involved.

Liverpool waterfront and city centre will come alive with a raft of activities including a veterans parade, a special band concert by Her Majesty’s Royal Marines at the Philharmonic Hall, a 40s themed party at St George’s Hall, a fly past and a fast roping rescue style display on the river involving the Royal Marines. There will also be helicopters, artillery, simulators and underwater divers – so get ready for an action packed adventure. With a wealth of things to see and do expect the unexpected.

    If you can help with the re-installation of the web cam coverage of the river Mersey. It would be much appreciated. As a 75 year old disabled person I would be more than happy to watch the “battle of the Atlantic” celebrations on my computer. Unfortunately the Wirral cams that point across the river towards us are out of commission, what a shame. Come on Liverpool help out please.
