Battle of the Atlantic Commemorative Event to be Held in Liverpool
The 70th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic will be commemorated next year with a series of events in London and Londonderry.
The final national commemoration, however, will be hosted by the city of Liverpool over the bank holiday weekend of May 24-27, 2013.
Around 5,000 veterans are expected to attend the parade led by the Band of the Royal Marines and HMS Eaglet guards after a thanksgiving service at the Anglican Cathedral.
The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest continuous military campaign in the Second World War and the port of Liverpool played a pivot role directing the battle's strategy from the Western Approaches HQ.
