Second Tranche Including Battle of Jutland Wrecks

On 31 May 2006, the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Jutland, it was announced that the remains of the fourteen UK ships lost in that battle were being designated as protected places. The 'second tranche' came into force on 1 November 2006. This revoked the first tranche, but re-designated the wrecks and added a further 29 protected places and 1 controlled site (the SM UB-81 (2)). HMS Sheffield was one of the protected places added. At around the same time, the Falkland Islands issued an order under the Falkland Islands Protection of Wrecks Ordnance 1977 designating HMS Coventry as a restricted area.

Famous quotes containing the words wrecks, including and/or battle:

    Thou shoreless flood, which in thy ebb and flow
    Claspest the limits of mortality,
    And sick of prey, yet howling on for more,
    Vomitest thy wrecks on its inhospitable shore;
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    In a democracy everybody has a right to be represented, including the jerks.
    Chris Patten (b. 1944)

    In a time of war the nation is always of one mind, eager to hear something good of themselves and ill of the enemy. At this time the task of news-writers is easy, they have nothing to do but to tell that a battle is expected, and afterwards that a battle has been fought, in which we and our friends, whether conquering or conquered, did all, and our enemies did nothing.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
