Photograph of the British Grand Fleet patrolling in the North Sea prior to the Battle of Jutland

Photograph of the British Grand Fleet patrolling in the North Sea prior to the Battle of Jutland

Taken on 1916-05-31

A series of photographs taken at, and in the aftermath of, the Battle of Jutland (31st May, 1916 - 1st June, 1916). This was the only major fleet action between the British and German navies during the First World War, and saw the destruction of: 3 British battlecruisers, 3 British armoured cruisers, and 8 British destroyers. German losses were lower at: 1 battlecruiser, 1 pre-dreadnought battleship, 4 light cruiser and 5 torpedo boats. The total number of lives lost in the battle were 6,094 British dead and 2,551 German. Despite the fact that the German High Seas Fleet was able to inflict far higher casualties on their British opponents, due to an inability to break out into the Atlantic Ocean, the High Seas Fleet never again set sail. Following the battle, the German naval high command switched to a total focus on unrestricted submarine warfare, which would later cause the entry of the United States into the First World War after the destruction of numerous American merchant ships. The images were collected and published after the battle in 1920 by H.M. Fawcett and G.W.W Hooper in a book called "The Fighting at Jutland: The Experiences of Forty-five Officers and Men of the British Fleet."

Text supplied by the German Federal Archive: "With the rebellion of the sailors and workers on 3 November 1918 in Kiel the November revolution starts. On 6 November the revolutionary movement reaches Wilhelmshaven. Our picture shows the soldiers' council of the Prinzregent Luitpold."- See Kiel Mutiny Wikipedia page for more information.
