Great War at Sea Poetry Project

Greetings, have just joined. A few months ago I set up the Great War at Sea Poetry Project to highlight
poems about the Great War at Sea written by combatants and non-combatants alike.
Also with the intention of looking examples of this genre, and to see why such poems rarely find their way to War Poetry anthologies.
Hope to eventually get an anthology organised to commemorate the centenary of Jutland in 2016.
Would welcome examples of such work, one source for poetry was in local papers .
Regards
Michael Bully

Just to give an update, the Website and the Blog are regularly updated. It looks like organising a printed anthology for the Jutland Centenary is going to be ambitious. Enough poems have been collected ,but finding a publisher is not easy. There are also copyright concerns to be worked out regarding the poems.
