Commemorating the Battle of Jutland
The National Museum of the Royal Navy
31st May 2016 is the centenary of the biggest naval engagement of World War One, the Battle of Jutland. The Hub are proud to have undertaken two projects commemorating this significant date.
Working with the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Artelia and Petrichor, The Hub have delivered the interpretation of HMS Caroline in Belfast. HMS Caroline is the last surviving light-cruiser to have been involved at the Battle of Jutland and The Hub, following an extensive restoration of the ship, have worked below and above decks to deliver high quality displays ranging from the interpretation of the captains quarters to installing replica 4” and 6” guns on the decks.
At the National Maritime Museum the “Jutland 1916” exhibition presents the compelling story of the ships, technology, strategy and impact of the battle on both the men who fought and their families. The Hub worked closely with the National Maritime Museum to develop designs, manufacture and install this new exhibition.
