Jutland 100

The War at Sea remembered 100 years on

Local school children from South Queensferry High School joined Royal Navy veterans and Queensferry & District Sea Cadets to mark 100 years since the Battle of Jutland, and launch the national commemorations for WWI’s biggest naval battle.

A remembrance service, parade, community event, dazzle ship and schools’ exhibition were just some of the events that took place on Saturday, 28 May as part of the Scottish Government’s national WWI centenary commemorations. The programme of events commemorated the contribution and sacrifices made by all those who served during the war’s largest naval battle where more than 6,000 British sailors lost their lives, and also highlighted the important role of the Forth during WW1.
