He served in various ships throughout his service and is confirmed as serving aboard HMS Chester at the Battle of Jutland 1916 Before the battle HMS Chester was attached to Rear-Admiral Hood’s battlecruiser squadron. This unit was normally part of Admiral Beatty’s battlecruiser fleet, but just before the battle it had been sent to Scapa Flow for gunnery practice, and so was with the Grand Fleet. As Admiral Hood approached the battlecruiser battle, the Chester was five miles to his west, on his starboard flank, placing her nearest to the battle. At 5.27 Captain Lawson heard gunfire and went to investigate, running into the German 2nd Scouting Group. The German cruisers opened fire on the Chester, and inflicted heavy damage on her – three of her 5.5in guns were destroyed, as was her aft control station. She was hit by 17 small projectiles, and suffered heavy casualties – 35 dead and 42 wounded. She escaped by fleeing back towards Admiral Hood’s battlecruisers, and in the short battle that followed the German cruiser Wiesbaden was so badly damaged that she later sank. Amongst the dead was Jack Cornwell, one of the ships’ boys. Aged only 16 he was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions during the battle. He was stationed at one of the ship's guns, a vulnerable spot because of the limited protection offered by the gun shields for the 5.5in guns. The HMS Chester tribute medal was awarded by the city of Chester to all crew members who served aboard the ship at the Battle of Jutland Medals with original ribbons and in NEF condition, tribute medal lacking top ring

British War Medal To RNVR KIA On a Q Ship British War Medal CZ 7389 R MONTGOMERY AB RNVR Reginald Montgomery from Bridge of Don Aberdeenshire was KIA aboard Hms Begonia ( Q10) on the 6th of October 1917 The following is a possible explanation for the loss of the Q ship HMS Begonia HMS Begonia was a regular warship, not a conversion. She was one of the "Flower-Q", sloops designed to foster the appearance of a freighter (like the French Amiens class of WWI). Officially she sank due to an explosion of undetermined origin with no survivors while cruising off Casablanca. That night, U 151 was cruising in the area, her lookouts reported seeing a "destroyer" charging her and the Captain dived, but the boat was still only at periscope depth when an impact was felt. This was followed by a heavy explosion and on surfacing it was found that there was considerable damage to deck casing abaft the CT. U 151 was able to continue on patrol. It is believed the collision ripped the bottom off Begonia and either a boiler explosion or friction which caused the explosion of ammunition in the magazine may have caused her immediate sinking. It is also likely some DCs exploded and killed any swimmers in the area. Medal with original ribbon and is in NEF condition
