David Beatty in United Kingdom

History of the Admiral of the Fleet 1st Lord Beatty (1871-1936), earlier Admiral Sir David Beatty.

The following commentary about Admiral of the Fleet 1st Lord Beatty (1871-1936), earlier Admiral Sir David Beatty. in the Churchill Era is produced by the Churchill College (Cambridge): Naval Secretary to Winston Churchill as First Lord of the Admiralty in 1912, then Commander of the 1st Battle Cruiser Squadron 1912 – 1916.

An able and ambitious naval officer, who entered the Navy in 1884, rising to Admiral of the Fleet by 1919. Beatty enjoyed the support of Winston Churchill, who in 1913 put him in charge of the battle cruiser squadron of the Grand Fleet. Beatty’s squadron was the first to find the German High Seas fleet off Jutland in 1916, but he engaged it instead of waiting for the main fleet under Jellicoe. Although Beatty was probably responsible for the disappointing British performance at Jutland he emerged with most of the credit, and shortly afterwards replaced Jellicoe as commander of the Grand Fleet.
