BBC: "HMS Caroline 'Can Be Key WWI Commemoration Project'

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Admiral Jellicoe's grandson, Nick, has been to Belfast to see HMS Caroline and says:

    "If Caroline can help tell the story of just why Jutland was so important in the first place and tell it in a way that engages a younger generation and sparks new interest, then she will have served a very much higher cause.

    We have a chance to retell some chapters of history, not only of the battle but through her later role in the Royal Navy Reserves.

    "It is absolutely essential that a strong communications role be developed for Caroline in the upcoming World War One centenary commemorations and that she contributes and pays her way to helping the rebirth of Belfast through educational tourism."
