2016 sees the 100th anniversary of the sinking of HMS Hampshire whilst sailing towards Russia with Lord Kitchener on board after the Battle of Jutland. A combination of words and music, this year’s Johnsmas Foy commemorates those who lost their lives on the Hampshire when it sank off Orkney on 5th July 1916.
