HMS Queen Mary

HMS Queen Mary - photo published 1915

I am attaching a copy of a photo of the Permanent Chapel  (above) and an invite to an 'At Home' on board the ship (right). My Grandmother married a stoker from the ship, Albert Laws. They married and he had to return to his ship that night She never saw him again. The strange thing is that I have found another stoker Albert Laws, who was killed on the Hood. Both stokers with the same name serving on ships that met near identical fates.

Thanks to John Larry for this contribution.

Battle of Jutland 31st may 1916.

Naval Battle which took place on the west coast of Jutland, Both the Germans and the British claimed victory. The Germans because they sank more ships. The British because the German High seas fleet would never again venture from there ports for the rest of the war.  The German main fleet consisted of 16 Dreadnaught Battleships and 6 pre-dreadnaught battleships, 11 Light Cruisers and 72 destroyers. The British Fleet consisted of Admiral Jellicoe's fleet of 28 Dreadnaught battleships and 3 battle cruisers and Admiral Beatty's force of 6 battle cruisers and 4 fast battleships.

The Germans had planned to sail from the Baltic to the north sea with the plan to engage the British Battle Cruisers in Norwegian waters. But due to German radio messages being intercepted by the British the British Grand fleet were alerted.
