After the Battle of Jutland, the Royal Navy faced what Admiral Sir David Beatty called the ‘weary waiting’, patiently anticipating a second battle with the German High Seas Fleet which never happened. But waiting did not mean inactivity.
Nick Hewitt will discuss how the Grand Fleet, probably the most powerful assembly of manpower and technology in the world at the time, continued to contribute to the war effort through 1917-1918, until it’s eventual, triumphant shepherding into captivity of a defeated High Seas Fleet, shortly after the Armistice.
