Some how missed the last two pages,
great to see Iron Duke in her new home.
It must make you very proud to see her displayed like that Ron.
Glad you were well enough to attend the unveiling.
Regards
Richard :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Nice new home, better than being in ARH's garage with a plastic cover to protect it against dust of the new projects! :heh:

Hi Bluebell, I joined this forum because of your build. A magnificant inspiration. I too would like to build a scale model of the Duke but have been unable to find any info or plans in Perth. Could you point me to where you got your plans? Greatly appreciated, Merv

You might have found the answer to this already but the best reference plans are held by the National Maritime Museum which curates all the plans in the old Brass Foundry in Woolich.

I have had some great news from Nick Jellicoe, Grandson of John Jellicoe regarding the display of the Iron Duke built by Admiral Ron Horabin. (ARH) The model will officially go on display at the Sea War Museum, Thyborøn, North Jutland, Denmark next Tuesday 15th September on the first stage of its tour of Europe.

Here is a link to Nick Jellicoes' Blog page showing the model on display along with other artifacts associated with the Battle of Jutland.

I have also included a photo of the model on display

It is also two years since ARH left us and this is a fitting tribute to him and his model.

Ron would be so pleased that his Iron Duke is forming part of the Jutland commemorations . Ron may have left us but part of Ron lives on in his Iron Duke.

On Monday 23rd May 2016 I, along with my partner Mo and my Mum attended the Centenary of the Battle of Jutland organised by the Nick Jellicoe, Grandson of John Jellicoe. The day started with decendants of Jellicoe, Beatty, Scheer and Hipper meeting in the crypt of St. Paul's Catherdral, London by the tombs of Admiral Jellicoe and Admiral Beatty. A short service was performed by The Reverand Canon Phillippa Boardman with a reading from Nick Jellicoe, after which wreaths were laid on each of the tombs by the elder members of each family.

All the members of the gathering where then taken to the Army and Navy Club a short walk from Trafalgar Square for buffet lunch where Nick gave a short talk about the past few years organising the event and all the various family members he had met. He also mentioned the model of the Iron Duke and how pleased he was to have received the model from my Dad, Ron, but saddened that he was no longer with us to attend this event.

To finish the afternoon off everyone walked to Trafalgar Square to attend a second wreath-laying ceremony below the two bronze busts of Admiral Jellicoe and Admiral Beatty. A number of readings were given by the younger descendants of the two before they laid the wreaths below each bust. It was a very enjoyable day and we were all proud to be part of it.

Thanks for that Tiny - I saw a few pics of the ceremony on Twitter, so am glad to read a fuller description of the event.
