Explore the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich as it plays host to Forgotten Fighters: The First World War at Sea, an exhibition that is part of the World War I commemoration, highlighting the naval and maritime aspects of the conflict.
While the actions on the Western Front usually dominate perceptions of World War I, it is sometimes forgotten that there was large scale fighting on the seas. Looking at the horrors of maritime human loss, the exhibition tells the personal stories of those who participated in battle. The gallery guides visitors from the heroism of merchant mariners to the realities of naval battle.
The exhibition features a wide range of objects, including weaponry, photographs, medals and ship models. Geographically, this exhibition covers locations such as the Falkland Islands, the Mediterranean, the Atlantic and the North Sea.
