The battle of Jutland

The battle of Jutland
A dramatic oil painting by Charles Dixon, will be returning to Darwen library at the end of November after 40 years on display at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery. The painting was donated to Darwen Corporation in 1920 by ‘an anonymous friend’, in memory of all the Darwen men who were killed in the Great War and was on display in Darwen’s reference library for over 50 years before being moved in 1974. The Friends of Darwen Library will unveil the large painting at a coffee morning in the library, all welcome – admission free.
Darwen Library - Saturday, 22 November from 10am – 12.30pm.

    Your article is very well done, a good read.
