The Admiralty has prepared a narrative of the battle of Jutland with explanatory charts. In accordance with an undertaking given to Lord Jellicoe by the late First Lord this account has been forwarded to him for any observations that he may wish to make before publication. As regards the second part of the question, an appreciation for the use of the Fleet is being prepared with a full account of the battle and will be available for use of officers studying at the staff college and war college as well as for other officers of the Fleet. Meanwhile lectures on the battle have been given at the war and staff colleges, and facts concerning the battle are always at the disposal of the staffs of these establishments.
