PQ17 was a convoy bound for North Russia during the Second World War, in July 1942.

Due to a combination of factors it suffered the loss of 24 of its 35 ships. This made it one of the worst maritime disasters of the 20th century.

This free presentation by Innes McCartney will outline the story of the convoy's fate and seek to answer how it was allowed to happen.
