'Rosy' Wemyss, Admiral of the Fleet

The Man Who Created Armistice Day

John Johnson-Allen

Rosslyn Erskine Wemyss joined the Navy at the age of 13, beginning a distinguished career that culminated in his important role, as First Sea Lord, in peace negotiations at the end of the First World War. This biography uses his archive of letters and reports to highlight the qualities that made him a popular officer, whether commanding the Gallipoli landings and evacuation or supporting TE Lawrence in the Arab Revolt.
