Ambrose historical naval base at Dundee.
Dundee had been a submarine base just before the First World War, though the submarines were withdrawn once the new naval base at Rosyth was completed in 1912. But as war clouds gathered again in late summer 1939, and the Royal Navy moved to its war stations, Britain's most modern and powerful submarine flotilla in Home Waters, the 2nd Flotilla, arrived in Dundee.
Even before war broke out, the Dundee boats were patrolling the North Sea, watching for German warships trying to break out into the North Atlantic. Dundee remained a vitally important Allied submarine base for the following six years, the British boats being joined by submarines from Poland, Norway, France and Holland as each of these countries fell under the Nazi heel. Dundee-based submarines played a central role in some of the most daring and important naval operations of the war.
Patrols were maintained perilously close to the enemy-held coastline in all weathers and in defiance of German aircraft and patrol vessels. Enemy warships were attacked, one Dundee submarine heavily damaging the battlecruiser Gneisenau and another blowing the stern off the cruiser Prinz Eugen. Dundee submarines patrolled far inside the Arctic Circle to help protect convoys carrying much-needed war supplies to the Soviet Union, on occasion even dicing with the mighty German battleship Tirpitz.
Enemy convoys carrying supplies and minerals vital to the German war effort were constantly attacked, so much so that the German garrison in northern Norway began to starve and had to be withdrawn.
Rosyth is now a Major Port where it should be near Edinburgh.
