Walt Burgoyne presents "The British Royal Navy"
The Royal Navy in World War II embodied Winston Churchill’s clarion call that Britain would “fight on the seas and oceans” and “never surrender.” Ships and sailors could imaginarily exert a siren call. Museum Assistant Director of Education for Interpretation Walt Burgoyne will explore two ships whose amazing global service ended near each other in the spring of 1942, when America’s participation in the war was in its infancy, however had embarked at a time when the Royal Navy had already secured a large measure of the final Allied victory.
