In 1997 Ben Barker (Grandson of Lt. Cdr. J F ‘Ben’ Barker DSC RN - captain of HMS Ardent) produced Channel Four’s “Secret History - The Tragedy of HMS Glorious”. Deep into the production process he discovered the connection between Glorious & Operation Paul. Unfortunately, it came too late to include in the documentary, which has bugged him ever since, thus he has created this website.
