Last Survivor of the Battle of Jutland Departs this Life
The Battle of Jutland, fought between the navies of Great Britain and Germany during WWI in 1916, was the greatest engagement of ironclad battleships and battlecruisers.
Henry Allingham, a member of the Royal Navy Air Service, was the last living man to have witnessed the battle. He passed away on Friday at the age of 113.
