On offer is a remarkable maritime relic of the Royal Navy and one of Britain's most famous battleships being the HMS IRON DUKE. The Duke was Admiral Jellicoe's, Commander of the Grand Fleet, flagship destroyer. The item, a silver plated match holder and tray, came from one of the smoking tables on the ship that was the Headquarters of the Commander of the Grand Fleet and then brought aboard the HMS AGINCOURT by George Napier Tomlin who routinely visited HMS IRON DUKE as described multiple times in Tomlin's journal.
