As part of the National Maritime Museum's commemoration of World War One, this new exhibition marks the centenary of the largest naval battle of the conflict - the Battle of Jutland.

National Maritime Museum,
Park Row,
Greenwich SE10 9NF

Involving a total of 279 ships on 31 May 1916, the North Sea bore witness to 'Der Tag', a major clash between the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet. Both sides suffered heavy losses in ships and men, but despite being the biggest naval surface engagement to date Jutland was one of the most keenly-felt disappointments of the war, with neither side achieving a decisive victory.

This exhibition runs until 1 May 2019.
