The "forgotten fleet"

Recommended Posts

While at Ballina Maritime Museum I came across some information I'd never known before. From November 1944 onward, there was a large British (Commonwealth) naval presence in the Pacific, which played a significant role in the war against Japan. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Pacific_Fleet


I'd thought after the sinking of Prince of Wales and Repulse, the fall of Singapore and the destruction of the ABDA fleet, the naval war in the Pacific had been a purely US affair. Apparently not. Makes interesting reading.
