Mess Hut Two – Human Torpedoes

Mess Hut Two – Human Torpedoes

Inspired by the success of Italian attacks, the British developed their own version of the human torpedo, which they nicknamed the Chariot.

The display tells the story of the development of the weapon and the underwater attacks on enemy shipping made by the brave British Commando frogmen. It features a full size, working replica of a Mk I Chariot and an original Mk II Chariot.

In addition to being a display hut, this hut is allocated to schools for packed lunches during term time or can be used as an indoor picnic eating area.
