Following actions in World War 1 it was common for the British to release various despatches and statements, often via the First Lord in the House of Parliament. Obviously as these were released during the war they contained elements of propaganda, censorship and genuine ignorance of many facts. Even so they are interesting accounts of some of the actions at sea.
