HMS Queen Mary leaving the River Tyne, 1912 (b/w photo)
HMS Queen Mary leaving the River Tyne on sea trials, 1913. She was a battlecruiser, launched by Palmers Shipbuilding and Iron Company, Jarrow on 20 March 1912.
Tragically, she was sunk at the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916 with the loss of 1266 men.
The Rivers Tyne and Wear were responsible for building many vessels, which served Britain during the First World War. This set remembers some of those warships that took part in the Battle of Jutland from 31 May to 1 June 1916. During the battle over 6,000 British sailors lost their lives and 14 Royal Naval vessels were sunk. The losses included the battlecruisers HMS Queen Mary and HMS Invincible, as well as the destroyers HMS Shark, HMS Sparrowhawk and HMS Turbulent, all built on Tyneside. Their memory lives on.
