Description

View of HMS Sparrowhawk at sea, c1913 (TWAM ref. DS.SWH/5/3/4/2/B173). She was an Acasta-class destroyer launched at the Wallsend yard of Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson on 12 October 1912.

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.
