#HMScaroline – A large scale appeal to find descendants of sailors from the island of Ireland who served in the First World War Battle of Jutland is to be launched in the New Year.

The Newsletter also writes that, a series of events will be held on May 31 marking the centenary of a famous naval battle, in which thousands of men lost their lives.

The last surviving vessel of the Battle of Jutland, HMS Caroline as Afloat reported on will also be launched as a heritage visitor attraction in Belfast.

History Hub Ulster is supporting the Northern Irish Executive and Republic of Ireland Government in encouraging relatives of Irishmen who served at sea in the First World War to share their stories.

Thousands of men and women from across the island assisted the war effort at sea and in maritime roles. For more on the story, click here.
