Thank you to John for spotting this article by Martin Wainswright on the Guardian News Website. I hope there will be more news about this in the coming weeks.
9 British seamen including my GGrandfather were killed when Dragon was shelled by Russio-German forces in Riga in 1919. Over the years my interest in the wider campaign has increased and I've found I'm increasingly fascinated with all the individual human stories and experiences of people who were there witnessing these events first hand. I'm not at all academic, this is just a hobby for me and any feedback is really welcome either here or on Twitter @riga1919
