Eighty years on. 28th March 1940


The Allied Supreme War Council meeting in London resolved that neither Britain nor France would make a separate peace with Germany.  The French suggestion to attack Soviet shipping and oilfields was rejected to avoid bringing USSR into the war against the Allies. It was agreed to lay mines in Norwegian coastal waters, hoping to provoke a German response and legitimizing Allied plans to interrupt Swedish iron ore shipments to Germany.

The Norwegian SS Burgos sank after hitting a German mine off the Lincolnshire coast.

The submarines in the Irish Sea moved around the coast of Scotland towards the north-east.   The two surface raiders in the North Atlantic took station off the east coast of the USA.
