Admiral Jellicoe's Visit to Canada, 1919
Admiral Jellicoe's Visit to Canada, 1919

Admiral of the Fleet Viscount John Jellicoe (right) visits Canada during a 1919 tour of the British Empire to discuss postwar naval plans.

Jellicoe had been a senior British naval commander for much of the First World War, and his visit to Canada as part of a world tour resulted in a report presenting a range of options for a post-war Canadian navy, including a fleet centered around battlecruisers and aircraft carriers. All were rejected by the Canadian government in favour of a small fleet composed of one cruiser and two destroyers offered by Britain that would operate in conjunction with two submarines and nine patrol vessels already operated by Canada.
