Dear All,

On the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Jutland, let us spare a thought for those gallant seamen of both the Grand Fleet and the High Seas Fleet who did not return:

Brave men that go down to the sea in ships…
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

'Absent Friends'
'Die Gefallenen'

We are honoring them with a re-fight. Truly gallant men. 1000s died in seconds.

With you on this one

For all who died, in remembrance

There are no roses on a sailor's grave,
No lilies on an ocean wave,
The only tribute is the seagull's sweeps,
And the teardrop that a sweetheart weeps.

Just watched the memorial service from St Magnus' Cathedral, Orkney. By far the best and moving cover of the event so far.

Has Indy Neidell (the great war/out of the trenches) done Jutland yet?

Thank you to Yellow Admiral for attending Enfilade Convention over the weekend and running a Jutland scenario to commemorate the battle. Well attended and received.

That was fun. I'm *still* hoarse. :-)

Next time, I'm doing smaller games. Oof.

News site I normally use, has 3 days set on Jutland.
First, an introduction to dreadnaugnts, 2d – description of the battle, and today there's a nice set of German postcards on the ir fleet and Jutland…hope they'll have the same for Grand fleet.
RIP all brave sailors.
