‘Dreadnought’ battleships from the Royal Navy Grand Fleet open fire on warships from the German High Seas Fleet during the evening fleet action of the Battle of Jutland, 31 May 1916. Involving a total of 250 ships and 100,000 seamen from both sides, the battle was the largest naval encounter of the First World War.

To honor all those who served in the Royal Navy during the Great War, each copy is conservation matted to include an ORIGINAL set of WWI Campaign Medals – The 1914 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal – which have been sourced and collected over a number of years.

Each group of medals was actually issued to a member of the British Army and have the recipients Service, Rank, Name and Number impressed on them.

Fully certifed and authenticated, no two medal groups are alike meaning each portfolio in this extraordinary edition is completely unique and cannot be replicated. The service number of the recipient is included with each set of medals allowing collectors to further research their history.
