During an attack on Ottoman forts & gun positions in the Dardanelles on 18th March 1915, HMS Irresistible ("Formidable' class pre-dreadnought) was lost after being mined & heavily damaged by shore batteries. Most of the crew were rescued, but many were lost before she sank. pic.twitter.com/H3WGtTvji0 — Mark Allen (@Allen1Mark) February 25, 2019 RT @Allen1Mark: […]
This Project
Charting the daily events of World War One, this history project aims to provide a bite-sized and engaging way to follow the events of 100 years ago. Using a variety of sources, I aim to refer to the main events of the war on the centenary of their occurrence. However, it's not just about the main events, I have also taken time to research lesser known events in order to help the reader to feel engaged with the scope of the war.
