Suffolk At War, Lecture Four- Suffolk’s Coast and Naval Warfare


With its long North Sea coast Suffolk has always been a maritime focussed county. Its proximity to potential enemies to the east has made Suffolk’s developed ports important to the Royal Navy and its auxiliary forces. This lecture examines the development of naval warfare and its effect on Suffolk and its ports during the twentieth century. We will also consider the experience of sailors from the county and the relationship between the Royal Navy, its auxiliary forces and the people of Suffolk.

Please note that this event will be live streamed and recorded. Live stream ticket holders will have the opportunity to ask questions in advance.
