The recent UK vote for Brexit was instantly seen by the ruling Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) as a brilliant opportunity to push for another Independence referendum. Should Scotland finally break away, it will have huge implications for the future of the sea-based nuclear deterrent force at HM Naval Base Clyde.

 

Former Prime Minister David Cameron is said to have banned contingency plans to switch the Trident submarines and Astute Class attack boats to England. These should now be developed under new P.M. Theresa May. Devonport - already home to the SSBN refit yard and also Trafalgar Class SSNs - will surely be waiting in the wings.

A century on from Jutland the UK faces a key decision.

 

BETWEEN EUROPE  SEA

If nothing else the Battle of Jutland a hundred years ago, is famous for one particular saying. Vice Admiral David Beatty lost two battle-cruisers from his advanced squadron and remarked: “There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today.”

 

After the initial encounter Beatty turned north and led the Germans onto the Grand Fleet. Later on May 31, 1916 Admiral John Jellicoe brought his ships into battle but despite twice crossing the High Sea Fleet’s lines, cutting the Germans off from their base, and hitting them harder, they later won the propaganda war, claiming a tactical victory.
