A significant collection of artefacts belonging to Admiral Sir John Jellicoe who commanded the Grand Fleet at the Battle of Jutland in 1916 is to go on display for the very first time.
His grandson Nick Jellicoe lent the full naval dress uniform of his grandfather, complete with a decorated sword belt, in anticipation of The National Museum of the Royal Navy’s blockbuster exhibition on the battle.
Also loaned to the museum, and seen by Mr Jellicoe for the first time, was a sword presented to Admiral Sir John Jellicoe by the City of London after Jutland.
