The Outbreak of World War II

3rd day of September 1939 was the start of the war for the U.K. and for the Royal Navy and the Merchant Navy the war started on this day.

The sinking of the passenger liner Athenia, without warning by a U-Boat on this day, was the first day of conflict that was to last for 6 (six) long years, with never a rest day on the worlds oceans.
