Nicholas Jellicoe (grandson of Sir John Jellicoe of Jutland fame) has written a couple of books on First World War naval matters and to accompany these books has set up web sites that contain quite interesting information, photos, charts, animation, etc.

The first of his books is “Jutland: The Unfinished Battle”.  I can’t comment on it as I haven’t read it - I already have a plethora of Jutland books.  However, the accompanying web site is quite good.  The link is: http://www.jutland1916.com/

Jellicoe’s second book, “The Last Days of the High Seas Fleet: From Mutiny to Scapa Flow” has yet to be published (publication date 30 May 2019).  This book covers the scuttling of the German fleet in 1919 and puts it in context with morale in the German fleet in 1918, the mutiny and the lengthy negotiations over the Armistice terms.  I also gather that it will also touch briefly on salvage operations afterwards.  This one I will get.

The accompanying web site to this second book, while not yet complete, is still quite interesting with plenty of data for the Data Nuts.  The link is: https://www.scapaflow1919.com/

All up, the two web sites provide the visitor plenty to explore.

Thanks ken, I agree, a lot to explore. I don't think I'd of ever come across it if you hadn't posted it. Cheers Paul
