June 1. Three NI officers at Jutland. Roll of Honour

After the battle of Jutland, Commander Edward Bingham VC from Bangor, Captain Herbert Meade, DSO from Ballynahinch, and Commodore Frederic Charles Dreyer from Armagh, had impressive careers. In 1940 six men die at Dunkirk where daytime evacuations cease due to danger to ships. A second son of the Seale family, Portadown, dies with RUR in 1944. There is a link to Rory Best, a recent Irish and Lions rugby player. Photos – Villers-Bretonneux CWGC Cemetery and a dedicated member of staff.
