Mission Statement

The purpose of the Group is to promote the increase and diffusion of knowledge of the Battles of the Atlantic, including their significance in the two World Wars of the Twentieth Century, and to contribute to the preservation of this important maritime heritage by conducting historical research on topics related to the maritime campaigns waged between the Allies and Axis/Central Powers during 1914-18 and 1939- 45; conducting scuba dives on wrecks associated with these campaigns and documenting their current and changing conditions via photography, videography, and/or traditional archaeological recording techniques; and presenting and publishing the results of both historical research and field work conducted by the group.
