A series of events celebrating the history of Scapa Flow will be available to watch live (and recorded) on the Orkney International Science Festival’s YouTube Channel and brought to you by Another Orkney Production (AOP)
On the 24th May 1941 the mighty Hood, a unique battlecruiser of her day, sank within 3 minutes. There were only 3 survivors – 1, 415 died on that day.
Another Orkney Production’s annual event “Celebrating Scapa Flow” will this year commemorate HMS Hood with an online programme, on 21st and 22nd May, thanks to the Orkney International Science Festival.
It centered on the importance of Storer’s History of Orkney and examined it within the context of its time.
