D-Day Anniversary HERE
A report of the action for Crete by Associate Member Clive Sharplin can be found HERE
The 31st May 2016 saw the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Jutland when a huge fleet of British and German warships engaged in the North Sea off the Jutland Peninsula creating the largest naval battle in history. 150 British warships took on 99 German ones and although Britain lost more ships (14 and over 6000 lives lost) compared to Germany (9 ships and 2500 lost) the German fleet was never again to be in a position to put to sea and challenge the British Navy in the North Sea.
One of those warships was the sixth HMS Ajax, a King George V Class Battleship launched in 1913 and decommissioned in 1924, and for the part she played received Battle Honours.
