Message addressed by His Majesty the King to Admiral Sir John Jellicoe.

At this grave moment in our national history I send to you, and through you to the officers and men of the fleets of which you have assumed command, the assurance of my confidence that under your direction they will revive and renew the old glories of te Royal Navy, and prove once again the sure shield of Britain and of her Empire in the hour of trial

GEORGE R.I.
