HMS Shark at sea

Description

Starboard bow view of HMS Shark at sea, c1913 (TWAM ref. DS.SWH/4/PH/4/903/3). She was an Acasta-class destroyer, launched at Wallsend by Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson on 30 July 1912. HMS Shark served with the Grand Fleet during the First World War but sadly was sunk during the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916. Only 6 out of the ship's company of 92 survived. You can find out more about the men who served on HMS Shark at livesofthefirstworldwar.org/community/2666. The Rivers Tyne and Wear were responsible for building many vessels, which served Britain during the First World War. This set remembers some of those warships that took part in the Battle of Jutland from 31 May to 1 June 1916. During the battle over 6,000 British sailors lost their lives and 14 Royal Naval vessels were sunk. The losses included the battlecruisers HMS Queen Mary and HMS Invincible, as well as the destroyers HMS Shark, HMS Sparrowhawk and HMS Turbulent, all built on Tyneside. Their memory lives on.
