'The Royal Navy' by Helen Campbell and Sheila Turner
My Mum's Dad, William George Marsden, served throughout the First World War, one of his ships being HMS Bologna. We have his medals. He was sunk three times; one sinking was during the Battle of Jutland. He told a story about how he and his fellow sailors kept a pet rabbit on board and how they managed to rescue it.
When the war was over he returned to his home in Bolsover, Derbyshire where he was a miner until he retired and moved to Cornwall with Grandma to be near his youngest daughter.
