TO MARK the 80th anniversary of
the Battle of Jutland, Navy News is
planning a feature based on first-
hand accounts, for publication in
May next year.
Anyone who participated in the
battle as a member of the Royal
Navy, Royal Marines or German
navy, is invited to send us their
recollections from which we will
draw. We are also seeking original
photographs from the period.
They will be returned after use.
