SIBLINGS TRAVEL ACROSS THE GLOBE TO VISIT JUTLAND EXHIBITION
We were delighted to welcome brother and sister David and Jill Stoker, who travelled from California and New Zealand to experience our Jutland exhibition.
Their grandfather Philip White was a torpedo gunner on HMS Spitfire at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. They were delighted to spot an image which they think shows their grandfather in action at the Battle of Jutland.
David Stoker: “Our grandfather never spoke of the battle so everything we know has been from reading books and accounts but the exhibit here makes things much more vivid and memorable.”
Jill Stoker: “Also because it’s the 100th anniversary of events during the First World War, it’s a great opportunity for people of all ages to come and find out more about the history.”
