15 June 2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of HMS Resolution, the Royal Navy’s first Polaris SSBN (Nuclear Ballistic Missile Submarine), commencing her first operational patrol. This conference, to be hosted by the National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, will explore the history of the Royal’s Navy’s operation of the British nuclear deterrent. The conference will seek to join operational experience with academic analysis. Any methodological approach and any aspect of the history of this period will be very welcome, although the core subject matter will be the Royal Navy’s role as the operators of the principal delivery system since 1968.
Tickets £60 including all lunches and refreshments, £55 to members of RNSM Friends, Submariners’ Association. Additional £15 for private view on 15 June.
