Yateley Men at the Battle of Jutland

Yateley Men at the Battle of Jutland

Although Yateley was an inland village, a few miles from Sandhurst, Camberley, Farnborough and Aldershot, Yateley men served in the Royal Navy at the Battle of Jutland. Their families were living in Yateley during WW1. Other men who had served at Jutland came to live in Yateley after WW1 - including Rear Admiral Hawksley, who spent the rest of his long life here, living at Heathcroft. Admiral of the Fleet Sir Cecil Burney never lived in Yateley himself but his widow and son came to live at Frogmore House in 1929. Two Yateley men lost their lives in the battle.
