This exhibition tells the story of the war at sea. Historical objects on display for the first time will transport you to this dark, but also hopeful period. Winston Churchill once said: “The only thing that ever really frightened me during the war was the U-boat peril.” The German submarines sank no fewer than 2,554 Allied ships and brought the United Kingdom to the brink of surrender. But on St. George’s Day (23 April 1918), the Royal Navy struck back. A fleet of 136 ships simultaneously attacked the occupied ports of Zeebrugge and Ostend.
