An exhibition that maps the distribution of men from Portsmouth and the local area who died during the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916 has opened at the History Centre in Portsmouth’s Central Library. The free exhibition is the result of a collaboration between Dr Rob James, his Research Assistant, John Bolt, and the Portsdown branch of the University of the Third Age. The exhibition is open until 23 June. The project, the final stage of which will be the production on an online map to be hosted on the University’s Port Towns and Urban Cultures website (http://porttowns.port.ac.uk/), was funded by an award from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
