Description

TALK AND DOCUMENT DISPLAY

During the First World War, Britain’s Royal Navy was one of the most powerful maritime forces in the world. Control of the seas was considered crucial to the war effort, and during the early 20th century both the Allied and Central Powers spent vast sums on developing ships.

Andrew Choong Han Lin of the National Maritime Museum will dive into this unique time in naval history in a talk at The National Archives, examining the records held by both institutions.

Andrew is Curator of Historic Photos and Ships’ Plans at the National Maritime Museum, and recently curated their exhibition Jutland 1916: WWI’s Greatest Sea Battle.


We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.

Entrance to The National Archives is free and there is no need to book, see nationalarchives.gov.uk/visit for more information.
