The Battle of Taranto

Paul Beaver talk

Naval aviators often feel that the great success that Swordfish torpedo bombers played in disabling the bulk of the Italian Fleet in November 1940 is overlooked. Eighty years on, Paul Beaver explains the why, how and wherefor of this carrier operation which followed on to the Battle of Britain and was very much a joint endeavour.

A curry supper is also available from the Apache Cafe at 6pm - advance order only (last orders for curry Sunday 8 November).
