In 1866 British engineer, Robert Whitehead, invented the first effective torpedo. French and German inventions followed closely, and the term torpedo came to describe self-propelled projectiles that traveled under or on water.

Find out all about the development of the torpedo in this illustrated talk by Peter Webberley. Peter’s speciality is Maritime Studies but his research nowadays is mainly for his own amusement and also to swell the archives of The Society for Nautical Research (South).
