U-Boats in the Irish Sea

There were wider implications to the three German officers’ escape attempt. In March 1915 Bernd Wegener, Captain of the U 27, pioneered a new route via the North Channel separating Northern Ireland from Scotland to test the feasibility of the escape. This opened the Irish Sea to enemy U-boat patrols.

This tribute was suggested by Thomas Jeffers, the Home Front Museum, Llandudno, and the attendees of the Research Afternoon, 5 June 2018. In association with CONWY County Borough Council.
