World War Two

Introduction

World War Two affected all parts of the East Coast with various ports having a Naval presence. The East Coast convoys, the lifeblood of London, were dependant on the protection from minesweepers, motor gun boats and torpedo boats based at Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Harwich backed by destroyers from the Nore in the Thames estuary. Ports were targets of the German bombing.
