NMRN Launches Twitter Feed for WW2 Convoy Re-enactment

On 24th October the NMRN is launching a twitter feed that follows WW2 North Atlantic Convoy SC107 from 1942. The details of the convoy have been created from actual archive records showing its progression from New York to Liverpool commencing on 24th October 1942.

The locations of all the other convoys sailing across the North Atlantic at the same time will appear on a clickable map. Twitter followers (@NMRNP) will receive summary information, as well as getting regular real-time updates throughout both day and night, including U-boat attacks and subsequent ship losses.
