HC Deb 03 March 1926 vol 192 c1406
23. Colonel DAY

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware of the desire of relatives of the men lost in the explosion of His Majesty's monitor "Glatton," off Dover, on the 15th September, 1918, and recently salved, for a memorial service to be held in memory of the men who perished: and will he accede to such desire?


I would remind the hon. and gallant Member that a memorial service for these men was held at the time of the loss of the "Glatton." I understand that it is not possible to explore the hull in its present position, and it may be a fortnight before this is done. If any remains are discovered arrangements will be made for them to be re-interred.

Colonel DAY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Deputy Chief of Naval Instruction at the Admiralty stated that there were no living men on this boat when she went down?


I am aware of that. He may have been wrong. If any remains are found, I will make the necessary arrangements.
