The Battle of the Atlantic premium poster honours the Royal Canadian Navy who fought in Canada’s longest campaign of the Second World War from September 3, 1939 to May 8, 1945. Hours after Britain declared war on Germany on Sept. 3, 1939, the German submarine U-30 sank the ocean liner SS Athenia. Among the 128 dead was ship steward Hannah Baird of Montreal, Canada’s first fatality of the Second World War. The Battle of the Atlantic raged for 68 months, the longest campaign of the war. Germany’s objective was to starve Britain into submission by cutting shipping supply lines. The Allies responded with escorted oceanic convoys and the Royal Canadian Navy played a critical role, protecting convoys from the Caribbean to the United Kingdom. By 1944, Canada had proven itself as one of the world’s best U-boat hunters.
