A Talk by Tim Barney - Mad, Bad and Dangerous

"I say Number One, my end is diving…what the hell is your end doing?” So enquired a worried officer aboard a British ‘K’ Class submarine, one of the many unsuccessful designs that feature in this talk.

The narrative explores a variety of military brainwaves and inventions that didn’t work too well, or were dangerous to their users, or were just completely mad to begin with, and ranges from the nineteenth century up to the present day. Incompetence, haste and wishful thinking have all played their part, in some of the most scandalous fiascos in military history. Sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction!
