Taking a break from the War

  • Description

    View of HMS Turbulent under construction at the Hebburn shipyard of Hawthorn Leslie, 5 June 1915 (TWAM ref. 4471/3). A great view of three shipyard workers taking a well deserved break. HMS Turbulent was a Talisman Class destroyer launched by Hawthorn Leslie on 5 January 1916. She was sunk on 1 June 1916 at the Battle of Jutland. A list of those on board who lost their lives can be found here http://www.northeastmedals.co.uk/britishguide/jutland/hms_turbulent_casualty_list_1916.htm" >www.northeastmedals.co.uk/britishguide/jutland/hms_turbul.... 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.
