BOA 70 - Photo and Video Coverage - Part 1
Photographs and video by Patrick Trollope -

THESE are more photographs and videos taken at the UK's 70th Anniversary Commemorations of the Battle of the Atlantic (BOA
70) main events that had been held in Liverpool from Thursday, 23 May 2013; until Tuesday, 28 May 2013.

The Battle of the Atlantic (BOA 70) was the longest continuous military campaign of the Second World War, so theme of BOA 70 is to illustrate the past, present and future of the UK's rich maritime heritage. The event had a particular emphasis on BOA 70 veterans; both Merchant and Royal Navy, who played a major role in helping overcome the appalling threat that the German U-
boats posed to our country's supply lines during the war. The event also hoped to show the ongoing reliance that Great Britain still has on the sea, and the continuing relevance of the Royal Navy in protecting the nation's many interests around the world.

Did you know that The event was sponsored by Cammell Laird, the Birkenhead ship repair and engineering firm, which also played a massive role in building and supporting ships that fought in the Battle during the War?
