Francis Harvey VC remembered at Jutland Private View

Nearly 40 donors and supporters attended another exciting event at the National Museum of the Royal Navy raising awareness of the SeaMore Appeal and celebrating the success of the newly opened Battle of Jutland Exhibition, 36 Hours: Jutland 1916, ‘The Battle That Won The War’

Among the guests were Jutland descendants, who shared the stories of their relatives, those who served in the forces and spoke about their experiences and the supporters of the Museums’ campaigns such as the Jack Cornwell Crowdfunding Campaign.
