26 Aug KEEPING THE FAMILY TIES
Keeping the family links strong. Richard Latham visits the Type 23 HMS Iron Duke in Portsmouth after her recent re-fit. Richard, who served in the Royal Navy as a Lieutenant, and myself are both grandsons of Admiral Sir John Jellicoe whose flagship at Jutland was HMS Iron Duke, less reverently known as the Tin Duck. We are always looked after handsomely by the navy.
