Rob Johnstone   ‘The Clash of the Dreadnought ’

 The race for naval superiority between the Allies and German forces in WW1 resulted in the largest naval battle and the only full-scale clash of battleships of the war – the Battle of Jutland in 1916. The resources involved were vast – over 250 ships.

These faced each other in a battle lasting over two days. Each side claimed victory and 25 ships and 10,000 lives were lost.

GXSA member Rob Johnstone will give some insight, relate the story, explain the differences between the fleets, their tactics and intelligence … and perhaps even give us his own view as to which side really did win.

Come and join us, and refresh your knowledge of this key battle in British Naval history.

This is a change in the previously advertised programme.
