Battle of Jutland, May 31, 1916Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Battle of Jutland, May 31, 1916

Description: British Royal Navy battlecruiser HMS Lion, center, on fire after being hit twice by gunfire from the German battlecruiser SMS Lutzow during the Battle of Jutland (May 31, 1916-June 1, 1916), on May 31, 1916, fought off Jutland, Denmark in the North Sea, the largest sea battle in World War I. Shells from the Lutzow struck the “Q” turret of the Lion, causing a fire, but thanks to the quick thinking of the mortally wounded Royal Marine Major Francis Harvey, who ordered the magazine flooded (he posthumously received the Victoria Cross), the ship was saved. The Lion was hit twelve more times by German gunfire, fourteen shells in all exploding on her armored decks, killing ninety-nine officers and crew members and wounding fifty-one others, but this fighting ship had fired 326 rounds from her main guns, striking several German warships in the battle.
