SMHS Meeting - The 1942 Channel Dash

18 Apr 2011

The annual SMHS AGM went very smoothly with all officers re-elected for another year.

Following on from the AGM Simon Bellamy gave his first presentation to fellow SMHS members about the ‘Channel Dash' made by three powerful German warships in February 1942. Simon's detailed account highlighted how a catalogue of errors allowed the ships to remain undetected for 12 hours during their passage from Brest in Brittany to the safety of German bases.
