My grandfather was a member of the crew of HMS Hercules at Jutland. Any useful information, images or discussion sought.

If you go to http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/search and search for Hercules, then filter by Media/Images, quite a few pictures of Hercules come up.

Thanks for that. I also managed to find some images of another ship my Grandfather served on as well, the destroyer Viscount. She survived until after the Second World War, unlike the Hercules, which was scrapped just after the Great War. The Hercules was a coal-burner of course.
