As we approach Remembrance Day TNA is timely in posting a podcast from a talk given on the anniversary of the 7 June 1940 sinking of HMT Lancastria while evacuating troops from St Nazaire in France.
The talk, by Janet Dempsey, recounts the circumstances and attempts to explain why so many who were lost will never be accounted for.
It's one of the more memorable TNA podcasts I've heard. Listen at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/podcasts/loss-of-lancastria.htm
