Andrew Kerr: How the Great War at Sea Ended
June 14 at 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
In terms of the Armistice of 1918, the best ships of the German High Seas Fleet were to be disarmed and thereafter interned to await allocation to the Allied navies. Andrew Kerr will talk about battleships, battlecruisers and the operation of the British Grand Fleet before describing how the German ships were met, 50 miles east of the Isle of May, and escorted into the Firth of Forth, thereafter being interned at Scapa Flow. There, almost exactly 100 years ago, they were scuttled by their crews. A booklet about the War at Sea, and a leaflet about the Surrender and Internment of the High Seas Fleet, both beautifully illustrated, will be available at the talk.
