Chris’ talk will discuss how the laying up of large numbers of English ships of Charle II’s Navy and the paying off of their crews allowed the Dutch to plan and execute an audacious raid upon the Thames, the Medway and Essex and Kent coastal towns; the chaos as those responsible for the Navy attempted belatedly to form some sort of weak defence; and the panic inland as it began to appear that the Dutch might attack London. Perhaps there’s a lesson here for modern day defence reviewers.
