HMS IRON DUKE 1916 Update
« on: September 11, 2015, 09:27:18 PM »

I have had some great news from Nick Jellicoe, Grandson of John Jellicoe regarding the display of the Iron Duke built by Admiral Ron Horabin. (ARH) The model will officially go on display at the Sea War Museum, Thyborøn, North Jutland, Denmark next Tuesday 15th September on the first stage of its tour of Europe.

Here is a link to Nick Jellicoes' Blog page showing the model on display along with other artifacts associated with the Battle of Jutland.

I have also included a photo of the model on display

It is also two years since ARH left us and this is a fitting tribute to him and his model.
