2013 marks the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic and the Trust has worked closely with the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and MOD to pay tribute to all those who served in that ruthless and relentless campaign. The Swordfish, one of the last remaining links with campaign, led the national commemorative events with fly pasts in London and Liverpool last month and the Trust was greatly privileged to share the memories of the many Fleet Air Arm Battle of the Atlantic veterans who attended our Battle of the Atlantic Receptions in HMS Illustrious in London on 11 May and HMS Bulwark in Liverpool on 24 May.

We would like to thank all our Supporters for the overwhelming response to these events and for the many kind donations and thank you letters we have received. May we also take this opportunity to draw your attention to our website with the latest news, stories and photographs and to the Royal Navy Historic Flight web site for dates and details of the Royal Navy Historic Flight air displays around the country.
