HMS Nomad

The HMS Nomad was sunk during the Battle of Jutland in WWI. My great-grandfather was on the HMS Nomad when it was sunk, waited in the water for thirteen hours, then was taken as a prisoner of war in Brandenburg, Germany.

I can find pictures of nearly all of the ships of that time period, but I cannot find a picture of the HMS Nomad. Surely there must be a picture of it prior to the Battle of Jutland.

Anyone know where I could find a picture or a list of P.O.W.s from the HMS Nomad?

Thanks.

You might want to know that H.M.S. "Nomad" was an Admiralty M-class destroyer. She was launched 7 Feb. 1916, so when sunk at the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916, she had only been afloat not quite four months. This explains why photographs of her would be quite rare. However, there are plenty of photographs of her sister ships. The wreck of the "Nomad" was accidentally discovered in 2001, so there are lots of websites which discuss that. There is also an article about her on Wikipedia (no photo there). You can look at images of some of the sister ships by typing (www.worldnavalships.com/moon_class.htm) in your search engine, but without the parentheses. First you will see a list of all the ships in the class, then scrolling down there is a selection of photographs below that. Copies are for sale, but there is none specifically of the "Nomad." Good luck to you.

Thank you so much! No, I probably cannot afford that. It didn't even occur to me that the Nomad had only been afloat for less than four months, and I had no idea that wreck was accidentally found in 2001. I will look into that!
