WATU wargame at Western Approaches war museum, September 8

On Saturday,  8 September 2018, volunteers from the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, the Royal Navy Maritime Warfare Centre, and PAXsims will be at the Western Approaches museum in Liverpool to recreate a WWII convoy escort wargame, of the sort conducted by the Western Approaches Tactical Unit.

This will be a unique opportunity to see the gaming techniques that helped turn the tide of the Battle of the Atlantic—and to honour the work of Captain Gilbert Roberts and the women and men of WATU. Hope to see you there!

    The museum will be open as usual. We’ll be running through one or more games, explaining WWII submarine and escort tactics, the wargaming procedures that were used by WATU, and some of their accomplishments.
