Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of National Maritime Museum  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

The National Maritime Museum will be marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War with a long-running exhibition about the naval battles of that conflict.

This was a time when the British had the most powerful navy in the world, which allowed them to fight the war at sea on an epic scale.

At the heart of the exhibition will be the personal stories of sixteen individuals who played a role in the war, from the reservists and WRENs, to the pilots and submariners -- because the war didn't just rage on the sea, but also beneath the waves, in the air and also on land.
