HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 cc1278-9
27. Viscount CURZON

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is in a position to give any particulars as to the sinking of the Bolshevist's cruiser "Oleg"?


The Bolshevist cruiser "Oleg" was sunk by British naval forces which encountered her when patrolling. It is obviously undesirable to give the exact means by which this was accomplished.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

When will dispatches be published showing the excellent work of the Royal Navy in the Baltic since the Armistice?


I do not think I can answer that. There are a great many difficulties which I cannot at present measure. I quite agree it is desirable that the splendid work done should be known.
