In April 1918 the Western Front was in stalemate.  News from the front was unremittingly bad, and thus came about the daring naval raids on St George’s Day 1918, designed to stop the submarine menace operating from Belgium, and allow unfettered reinforcements to cross the Channel.  This talk will highlight the key role played in the operations by the Mersey ferries Iris and Daffodil.
