Coastal Command aircraft based in Londonderry played a vital role in the Battle of the Atlantic, protecting convoys from packs of U-boats.

It is fitting that Lisburn pilot Terence Bulloch, who was the most successful at sinking or disabling the German submarines, should be honoured now by having one of a new fleet of maritime aircraft named after him.

It may be 75 years since the end of the Second World War, but we must never forget those people who helped to defeat Nazi forces.

The Atlantic convoys were the UK's lifeline from the US and the bravery and skill of men like Bulloch ensured the supplies were safely delivered.
