The Battle of Jutland – escape

As the ship steamed back towards the German Fleet reports of damage to the ship revealed she was in a bad shape. Only one gun turret was operational but damaged rangefinder equipment meant 12 salvos fell short of their target. The captain ordered the ship to be completely stopped for 10 minutes while further repairs were made to the steering. The decision paid off and as the light faded she turned away back towards Rosyth.
