Article published 13th June 1916 in the Nottingham Evening Post :- “INVINCIBLE'S END. “COMMANDER'S MESSAGE TO BULWELL PARENTS. “In the course of a letter to the parents of Frederick A. Pearl, 18, Coventry-road, Bulwell, who went down with the Invincible in the recent naval battle, the commander of that cruiser describes how a big explosion occurred aboard while the ship was engaged. Death, he stated, came suddenly and painlessly to Pearl, who died as he would have chosen to die. The stokers were doing good work, and everyone was enthusiastic at the beating they were giving the Germans. The splendid end of the dear old ship would always be a proud memory to those who had lost their dear ones in her in the service of King and country. “Pearl had been 12 years in the navy, and was home on leave a little over a month ago. He took part in the Heligoland and Falkland Islands battles.” Above article is courtesy of Jim Grundy and his facebook pages Small Town Great War Hucknall 1914-1918.
