Naval Bombardment of Hartlepool, 1914


The Imperial German Navy made major attacks on Scarborough, Hartlepool, West Hartlepool, and Whitby on 16 December 1914. The attack on Hartlepool killed 93, including the first soldier to be killed on British soil by enemy action in the First World War, and injured 436. Around 1,150 shells were fired at the town.

These raids on had a major effect upon British public opinion, and became part of a British propaganda campaign, 'Remember Scarborough', used on army recruitment posters.
