The Admiralty Regrets - the disaster in Liverpool
Bay. The story of
the Thetis Submarine Tragedy in 1939, is the definitive account of the whole sorry episode
of the Birkenhead built vessel that cost 99 lives; still today the worst submarine
disaster in British History.
Could the men in Thetis have been saved?
Did the Admiralty really regret?
More than 60 years on the book tries to address some of lingering
doubts about the incident.
With a new foreword by the son of Leading Stoker Walter Arnold, one
of the four survivors of the Thetis, and a new postscript by David Roberts, a Liverpool
based maritime historian; this updated edition is a striking read. Also included are some
hitherto unpublished photographs and documents.
The book is priced at £15.50 inc. p&p in UK
