HMS Belfast – Lisbon Maru Reunion


The Lisbon Maru was a WWII PoW ship under a false flag, holed by the allies, and the prisoners locked in and left to drown.  Some escaped to the mainland for later recapture, but hundreds died.  There were many stories of heroic rescues.  In 2008 we invited the remaining survivors on board the HMS Belfast for a talk, meal, and to tell their tales on video for posterity.
