Liverpool War Museum
In 1941, Derby House, part of the Exchange Flags building, became home to Combined Operations, which was responsible for control of the Western Approaches in the Second World War.
The complex was bomb proof and gas proof, with a 7-foot thick roof and 3-foot thick walls, and 100 rooms covering an area of 50,000 square feet.
The Royal Navy, Air Force and Royal Marines worked jointly there to monitor enemy convoys and “wolf packs” of submarines during the war. The bunker played a huge part in the victory of the Battle of the Atlantic.
Today, the historical war time bunker has been restored and is open to the public as a memorial to those who died to achieve it. It is the original building where the original battle was fought and won. It has been reconstructed exactly how it used to be.
