Londonderry's part in the Battle of the Atlantic

Theres a very good Maritime Museum in Greencastle on the Foyle. They have a very good section on the Battle of the Atlantic. Interesting little fact. The Foyle Pilots who brought the ships up and down the river were mostly based in Eire.They were all awarded the Atlantic Star at the end of the war.

Certainly enjoyed the program, fascinating to see the squid and loaded too, hats off to the dive team.

Just annoying that the locals call it Londonderry but the guy presenting it calls it Derry.

I'm sure that some of them don't, but that's it's name isn't it? Besides, the guy he was talking to did call it Londonderry.

Just looked the naming of Londonderry/Derry up on Wikipedia and it looks like a bit of a minefield, so I'm going to knock it on the head AtG.

I watched the prog, was very intresting, especially the bit about the US having a base before they entered the war "full-time". However the incidental music during the dives was a huge distraction - its a documentary, Tristran - you dont need incidental music.

Yep, I noticed that too - wondered what an RAF Wren was - thought it might be a tame bird they'd caught!

Mind you, that Type 20 boat was a bit naughty, shame there isn't one on the surface for us to see.

Every day a schoolday! Wonder why they didn't mention that on the documentary - mind you, that's a Type XXI and they WERE talking about a Type XX.
