This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
Battle of the Falklands
The enemy ships were sighted off the Falklands and the powerful battlecruisers quickly closed the gap on the German ships to 14 km. At 13:20 Martin felt the ship vibrate to the report of the 12-inch guns as they fired on the SMS Gneisenau. By 16:20 the battle was over and Spee’s entire squadron lay at the bottom of the sea. 2,200 German sailors were killed in the encounter.
