100 YEARS AGO TODAY: The March to the Rhine - Day 4.

 

The 61st Field Battery shifts from Camron St. Vincent to Brain-le-Comte, inspected G.O.C. 1st Canadian Division, General MacDonnell enroute, Thursday, 21st November 1918.

 

Operation ZZ (Surrender of the German High Seas Fleet): The largest gathering of warships in one place, on one day in history, occurred when the German High Seas Fleet surrendered en masse to the British Navy, Thursday, 21st November 1918. Nine German battleships, five battlecruisers, seven cruisers and 50 destroyers (one destroyer being sunk after hitting a mine before reaching the destination), had set out to meet the British Navy at the Firth of Forth, before being brought to the Orkney Anchorage of Scapa Flow.

 

On this day, the flag of the German Navy was lowered and the Allied Powers dictated it would never again be hoisted without permission (See: Lesson No. 43 on how not to treat the conquered).
