100 Year anniversary of the Battle of Jutland
It is 100 years since the Battle of Jutland. My grandfather was onboard Warspite through the battle. Over 6000 young men died during the battle which was over in the space of a few days.

The feckless wanderings of Warspite scared off the German fleet who thought they were being attacked.

My dad always talked about this battle and I have always seen it as an example of how, no matter how badly things seem to be going, you never know what the result will be until it's all over, and the dust has settled.
