Battle of Atlantic marked in Liverpool

Events to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic are taking place in Liverpool, the home of the Western Approaches Command.

The city was the destination of many of the convoys which faced a dangerous journey across the ocean with vital supplies for the Allies.

Ten of thousands of lives were lost during the battle, which began as war broke out in 1939 and climaxed in May 1943.

HMS Edinburgh's Commander Nick Borbone spoke of the endurance and bravery of those involved in keeping the supply routes open.
