Royal Navy at War - A Sailor's View

Postby paulcadogan » Thu Mar 16, 2017 3:08 pm

Hi all,

I've just discovered a series of documentaries posted on Youtube in January 2017 that feature some great footage of the RN in various phases of the war and thought I'd share.

I'll just post the link to the ones I've watched in its entirety so far - the first features colour footage.

One of the interesting yet disappointing facts as told by the narrator is the amount of film that was destroyed or discarded by censors, leaving just fragments of what was actually recorded.

There are several episodes that will come up, so you have hours of watch time..... Enjoy!

I bought the same footage on a 5 disk DVD, about 10 years ago. It is great stuff.
