Op 31 mei is het 90 jaar gelden dat de Slag Bij Jutland plaatsvond.

http://www.forumeerstewereldoorlog.nl/wiki/index.php/Slag_bij_Jutland

Op 31 mei 1916 koerste de Duitse "Hochseeflotte" (bevelhebber Reinhard Scheer) bestaande uit 22 slagschepen (waaronder 6 pre-dreadnoughts), 5 slagkruisers, 11 lichte kruisers en 61 torpedoboten vanuit Wilhelmshaven noordwaarts en stuitte ter hoogte van het Skagerrak op de Britse "Grand Fleet" (bevelhebber John R. Jellicoe), die uit het westen naderde. De Britten waren getalsmatig verre superieur; hun vloot bestond uit 28 slagschepen, 9 slagkruisers, 8 pantserschepen, 26 lichte kruisers, 77 torpedobootjagers en 3 flottieljeleiders. Het kaliber van de Duitse kanons (max. 30 cm) was kleiner dan dat van de Britten (max. 38 cm), maar de Duitse schepen waren zwaarder gepantserd en beter geconstrueerd.

Het lijkt me een leuke uitdaging om van de diverse schepen afbeeldingen te plaatsen, voorzien van naam.
Een korte tekst met een stukje historie van het schip erbij zou het helemaal afmaken.

HMS Engadine (1911)



HMS Engadine was a seaplane tender (seaplane tender: a seaplane tender (or seaplane carrier) is a ship which provides the facililites...
[She was built as a Folkestone (Folkestone: folkestone is a coastal resort town in the shepway district of kent, england)


Her aircraft participated in the Cuxhaven Raid on Christmas Day 1914
At the Battle of Jutland (Battle of Jutland: An indecisive naval battle in World War I (1916); fought between the British and German fleets off the northwestern coast of Denmark) in 1916, one of her seaplanes, piloted by Lieutenant Frederick S. Rutland with Assistant Paymaster G.S. Trewin as observer carried out an aerial reconnaissance of the German fleet. This was the first time that a heavier-than-air aircraft had carried out a reconnaissance of an enemy fleet in action. Later in the battle she rescued the crew of the crippled HMS Warrior before taking her in tow. Later in the war she served in the Mediterranean.

She was sold back to her original owners, the South Eastern and Chatham Railway Company in December 1919 and sunk by a mine with heavy loss of life in Manila Bay in December 1941 having been renamed Corregidor in 1933.

The Warrior



HMS Warrior and her sisters were a considerable improvement on previous designs. They increased the secondary battery to 7.5in and mounted them at main deck level rather than in casemates. This also gave them a higher centre of gravity and made them steadier ships and excellent gun platforms. Highly regarded by the British before the war they were considered by those that had served in them to be the best cruisers in the Royal Navy.



The Warrior overleefde de slag niet.

HMS Indefatigable (1909)



HMS Indefatigable was a battlecruiser of the Royal Navy, the lead ship of her class. She was essentially a lengthened version of HMS Invincible, with additional room added amidships to allow both 'P' and 'Q' turrets to fire on either broadside.

Upon commissioning, Indefatigable served in the 1st Cruiser Squadron, which in January 1913 was renamed the 1st Battlecruiser Squadron. In December 1913, she transferred to the Mediterranean where she served in the 2nd Battlecruiser Squadron, and in August 1914 took part in the pursuit of Goeben and Breslau. She participated in the bombardment of Cape Helles on 3 November. After undergoing refit at Malta, in 1915, she joined the Grand Fleet based at Scapa Flow.

As part of the 2nd Batttlecruiser Squadron, under the command of Captain C. F. Sowerby at the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916, she was hit by 28 cm (11-inch) shells from Von der Tann. She was hit first by two shells in the "X" magazine area, blowing out her bottom and causing her to fall out of formation, sinking by the stern. Following more hits in the area of 'A' turret, the forward magazine exploded, and the ship sank quickly, killing all but four of her crew of 1,017.

Friedrich der Grosse


En deze keer een Duits schip.

SMS Friedrich der Grosse was a Kaiser-class battleship of the Imperial German Navy.

She was built at Hamburg, launched on 10 June 1911, and commissioned on 15 October 1912. She became the flagship (of Vice Admiral Reinhard Scheer) of the Hochseeflotte (High Seas Fleet) until 14 March 1917, participating in the Battle of Jutland. She was scuttled at Scapa Flow in the Orkneys on 21 June 1919, and subsequently broken up for scrap on-site (the other four Kaiser class ships were salvaged and broken up at Rosyth between 1929 and 1937).

Von der Tann



Quote:
With the construction of the first British battlecruisers of the Invincible class, it got obvious that those ships would easily outperform the German Panzerkreuzer (or Große Kreuzer as they were officially called). With their main task being the center of the reconnaissance force, the Panzerkreuzer would have been without chance against British reconnaissance forces consisting of battlecruisers (as it was shown in the Battle of the Falklands).

As a reaction to the Invincible , Germany built its first battlecruiser, the Von der Tann . Being the first major warship with turbine engines, it was a major advance from the last Panzerkreuzer built, the Blücher , during trials, the turbines were able to produce almost twice as much power as they were originally designed for.

Although having smaller guns than the British ship (28 cm compared to 30,5 cm) the Von der Tann was much better protected than they, a design philosophy - smaller guns in favor of better protection - which was used in almost all ships build in this time and proved to be essential during the battle of Jutland

Von der Tann and its successors looked all quite identical and all shared the same problem, caused by the low bow height, they took over much water at high speed or bad weather condition.

The ship was part of the 1st Reconnaissance group (1. Aufklärungsgruppe) and took part in most major operations.

Quote:
SMS Von der Tann was the first battlecruiser built for the German Kaiserliche Marine as well as Germany's first turbine powered major warship. Built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg, Von der Tann was to be the workhorse of the Scouting Squadron. The ship had relatively small guns (11 in) when compared to her British counterparts (12 in), but was far better armoured.

SMS Von der Tann was named after Ludwig Freiherr von und zu der Tann-Rathsamhausen, a Bavarian general who fought in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870.

Von der Tann took part in the unsuccessful search for British battlecruisers after the Battle of Helgoland Bight in 1914. Later that year she was present at the bombardment of Yarmouth and Scarborough. 1915 the ship took part in operations in the North and Baltic Seas. Early 1916 she took part in the bombardment of Yarmouth and Lowesoft. At the Battle of Jutland she received four heavy hits, but sank HMS Indefatigable after heavy gun action. Her own casualties amounted to 11 dead and 35 wounded.

After Jutland she underwent repairs and took part in several unsuccessful raids into the North Sea. The vessel was surrendered with the rest of the High Seas Fleet on 24 November 1918 and interned at Scapa Flow. Scuttled there by her own crew on 21 June 1919, she was raised in 1930 and scrapped at Rosyth.

Seydlitz



SMS Seydlitz was a 25,000 ton battlecruiser of the Imperial German Navy, built at Hamburg, Germany, and commissioned in May 1913. She was named after Friedrich Wilhelm von Seydlitz, a Prussian general during the reign of King Frederick the Great

At the Battle of Dogger Bank (1915), 24 January 1915, in World War I SMS Seydlitz was the flagship of Admiral Franz von Hipper. She was hit by a 13.5-inch shell from HMS Lion which penetrated the working chamber of her after turret. The resulting explosion knocked out the rear turret and, due to an open door to the adjacent turret, knocked out that one as well, with the loss of the 160 men of the two turrets’ crews. Only the prompt action of her executive officer in flooding the magazines saved Seydlitz from a magazine explosion that would have destroyed the ship.



At the battle of Jutland she fought in Hipper's battlecruiser squadron and sank HMS Queen Mary with her accurate shell fire. Seydlitz was heavily damaged herself, being hit by twenty-one heavy shells and one torpedo and suffering 98 men killed and 55 injured. She shipped 5,000 tons of water, reducing her freeboard to almost nothing, but made it back to port.

After the armistice she was interned at Scapa Flow where she was scuttled by her crew with the rest of the High Seas Fleet on 21 June 1919. She was salvaged in 1928 and scrapped.

HMS Hampshire

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46NL_hIZr3c

HMS Hampshire was a Devonshire-class armoured cruiser of the Royal Navy. She was constructed at the Chatham Dockyard, Kent and commissioned in 1905 at a cost of around Ł900,000.

She served in World War I and fought at the battle of Jutland on May 31, 1916. Immediately after the battle she was directed to carry Lord Kitchener from Scapa Flow on a diplomatic mission to Russia. Sailing for Archangel in a gale she struck a mine at around 19:40 on June 5, 1916 off Mainland, Orkney between Brough of Birsay and Marwick Head. The ship sank very rapidly. Kitchener, his staff and most of the crew perished, only twelve men survived. The mine is believed to have been one of those laid by the submarine U-75 on May 23.

The wreck was declared a war grave. She lies in around 65 metres of water at 59°7′2″N and 3°23′46″E. In 1983 one propeller and part of a drive shaft were illegally salvaged. The prop was later given to Lyness museum, Orkney after protests.

SMS Pommern



SMS Pommern was one of the Deutschland class of pre-Dreadnought battleships built for the Kaiserliche Marine between 1904 and 1906. Named after the Prussian province of Pomerania, she was built at the AG Vulcan yard at Stettin (now Szczecin, Poland), where she was launched on 2 December 1905. She was commissioned into the navy on 6 August 1907. The ships of her class were already outdated by the time they entered the service, being inferior in size, armor, fire power and speed to the new post-Dreadnaught battleships.

At the Battle of Jutland on 31 May - 1 June 1916, Pommern, under the command of Kapitän zur See Bölken, was part of Rear Admiral Mauve's Second Battle Squadron. During the night action following the main battle, Pommern was hit at about 02:00 on 1 June 1916 by by a torpedo fired by HMS Faulknor of the Twelfth Destroyer Flotilla. The hit was followed by a massive explosion in one of her magazines, and the ship broke apart midships and quickly sank with the loss of all 839 men aboard.

The wreck was substantially salvaged in 1957, with the armour and non-ferrous metals being removed. The bow ornament (Bugzier) is now in the German Naval Memorial, Laboe.

HMS Agincourt (1913)



HMS Agincourt was a World War One Dreadnought battleship of the Royal Navy.

She was a unique vessel, laid down by Armstrongs at Newcastle upon Tyne as the Brazilian Rio de Janeiro in September 1911. The chief designer of Armstrongs, Eustace Tennyson d'Eyncourt, produced her outline design in his hotel bedroom in Brazil during the negotiations. As a result of a collapse in the rubber trade, Brazil cancelled the order in 1912, and sold the vessel on to the Turkish navy for Ł2,750,000 in January 1914. Renamed the Sultan Osman I, she underwent trials in July 1914 and was completed in August, just as the First World War began. She was among the first British battleships with completely centreline distributed superfiring turrets (a necessity given the number carried), nearly five years after such a layout had been shown on the USS South carolina.

The war broke out before delivery during the trials. Even though the Turkish crew had arrived to collect her, the British Government took over the vessel for incorporation into the Royal Navy. At the same time the British also took over a second Turkish battleship, also being built by Armstrongs - The Reshadieh which was renamed HMS Erin). Such an action was allowed for in the contracts but it had consequences. The takeover caused considerable ill-feeling in Turkey, where public subscriptions had partially funded the ships. This proved an important factor in turning Turkish public opinion against Britain, especially as the Turkish Navy had been pro-Britain - the Army having been pro-German. It helped put Turkey (and its Ottoman Empire) into the war on the side of Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire against the Triple Entente of Britain, France and Russia (29 October 1914). As an act of generosity to secure their allies, Germany made a gift to Turkey of the battlecruiser SMS Goeben and of the light cruiser SMS Breslau.



Agincourt was an unusual ship in having seven main turrets. This gave her a broadside of 14 main guns - a commentator remarked that when firing a broadside it looked like a ship blowing up. Normally ship turrets are lettered A,B, Q etc, hers were named after the days of the week. Popular belief at the time held that firing a full broadside would have capsized her; this was proven wrong but still held anyway.

She had poor armour in comparison with her armament, having just 9 inches (229 mm) maximum belt thickness compared with 12 inches (305 mm) or more that would be expected. Added to this her internal layout was poor, with fewer bulkheads and more open spaces than would have been acceptable for a ship designed for the Royal Navy. She would have ranked as a battlecruiser but for her low speed. By her completion, her 12-inch (305 mm) guns had started to become obsolete - most capital ships under construction having larger calibres.

The Royal Navy made modifications before commissioning its prize: in particular they removed a flying-off deck for seaplanes.

The luxurious fittings, that may have led to the original high cost to the Brazilians, gave her the nickname 'Gin Palace'. The other explanation to this nickname was A Gin Court, replace the court by the simular meaning palace and the rumors gin was the favorite pasttime of some naval officers of noble decend on board



Crew photo of HMS Agincourt taken around 1914ish - Centre crew member with his hand resting on the ship's mascot is Robert Tilley

HMS Agincourt formed part of the First Battle Squadron at the Battle of Jutland, which she survived unscathed firing several broadsides without damage.


She was reallocated to the Second Battle Squadron in 1918 and decommissioned in 1919. After unsuccessful attempts to sell her to the Brazilian Government she was recommissioned as a depot ship before being decommissioned again in 1921 and scrapped in 1924.

BerichtGeplaatst: 10 Mrt 2006 22:42    Onderwerp: HMS Neptune Reageer met quote

HMS Neptune was a Royal Navy dreadnought, intended to be the lead ship of three Neptune-class battleships, but the subsequent two ships had thicker armour and were reclassified as the Colossus class.



Arrangement of main gun turrets, bows pointing right
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Neptune

She was the first Royal Navy battleship that differed in her gun turret layout to Dreadnought. She had the first superfiring main armament in the Royal Navy, with the two rear turrets arranged so that one would fire over the other when shooting towards the stern. She also had two wing turrets mounted en echelon so that all five turrets could shoot in broadside although in practice this strained the hull.



She was one of the first battleships to be built with director gun-control and was used for trials of this then-novel system. She was flagship of the Home Fleet from May 1911 until May 1912 when she was transferred to the First Battle Squadron, where she remained until June 1916. She was accidentally struck by SS Needvaal in April 1916 but no serious damage was done. She was present at the Battle of Jutland as part of Admiral Jellicoe's battle fleet. She fired only 48 12 inch (300 mm) shells but is credited with scoring several hits on the German battlecruiser Lützow.

After the war she was quickly transferred to the reserve fleet and subsequently scrapped.

SMS Frauenlob

SMS Frauenlob was a Gazelle-class light cruiser in the German Imperial Navy. The first naval vessel of that name was a Prussian naval schooner, built in 1853. The ships were named after the medieaval poet Heinrich von Meißen, whose moniker was "Frauenlob" ("praise of women").

SMS Frauenlob was built at A.G. Weser in Bremen, launched on 22 March 1902 and completed on 17 February 1903. She had a length of 104 m, a beam of 12.3 m and a draught of 5 m, displacing 2,700 tons. The cruiser was armed with ten 10.5 cm rapid fire guns, 14 x 37 mm machine guns and two 45 cm torpedo tubes. Top speed was 21.5 knots.

On 28 August 1914, shortly after the outbreak of WWI, Frauenlob saw her first action in the Battle of Heligoland, when the British Harwich forces with two light cruisers and 33 destroyers under Commodore Reginald Tyrwhitt raided deep into Heligoland Bight. At about 8:00 am SMS Frauenlob and the light cruiser SMS Stettin spotted the British force and opened fire on Tyrwhitt's flagship HMS Arethusa, rendering her severely damaged and unable to continue the battle. When Arethusa turned away, the German cruisers did not pursue her, which saved them from running into Vice Admiral Beatty's battlecruisers that were bearing down upon the battle site and soon afterwards sank the German light cruisers SMS Cöln, SMS Mainz and SMS Ariadne and the torpeoboat V 187.



During the Battle of Jutland SMS Frauenlob was part of the IVth Scouting Squadron under Captain Ludwig von Reuter. In the course of the chaotic night action, the squadron encountered Commodore William Goodenough's 2nd Light Cruiser Squadron. The ensuing short, but violent firefight resulted in heavy damage to the British cruisers HMS Southampton and HMS Dublin. However, SMS Frauenlob was hit by a torpedo fired by HMS Southampton and by an artillery shell that ignited ammunition stored near the aft guns. She rapidly listed to port and sank, with only five of her crew of 329 surviving.

In 2000 the wreck, largely intact, was located by Danish divers. The ship's bell was salvaged in 2001 and is now at the German Navy Memorial at Laboe near Kiel.

HMS King George V (1911)


1913

The first HMS King George V was a King George V-class of 1911 dreadnought, with a displacement of 23,400 tonnes and an armament of ten 13.5-inch guns in twin gun turrets and a secondary armament of sixteen 4-inch guns and had a crew complement of 870, though this increased substantially by 1916 to 1,110, and had a length of 597 feet. She took part in the Battle of Jutland, being the lead ship of the 1st Division of the 2nd Battle Squadron. Her sister-ships were HMS Centurion, HMS Audacious and HMS Ajax. HMS Audacious was sunk by a mine off the northern coast of Ireland, the rest survived World War I and were all decommissioned by 1924. King George V herself was decommissioned in 1919, used as a training ship between 1923-26 and scrapped in 1926.

SMS Elbing

The SMS Elbing was a German Pillau class light cruiser, named after the Prussian city of Elbing. Intended for the Russian navy under the name Admiral Newelski, the ship was built at F. Schichau shipyard in Danzig in 1913-1914. Following the outbreak of World War I, the ship was confiscated and launched on 21 November 1914 als SMS Elbing. Technical problems with her guns (originally intended to be fitted with Russian 13-cm guns, she was eventually equipped with new German 15-cm guns, she and her sister SMS Pillau being the first German light cruisers to be fitted with 15-cm guns) delayed her deployment until September 1915.



Under the command of Commander Madlung, the ship participated in the Battle of Jutland from May 31 to June 1 of 1916, where she was the first to open fire, registering a hit at extreme range on HMS Galatea (the shot did not explode). Together with the light cruisers SMS Hamburg, SMS Stuttgart und SMS Rostock, she then engaged a flotilla of British destroyers, receiving a heavy hit with a loss of 4 dead and 12 wounded.

During the night of 31 May to 1 June, Elbing collided with the German battleship SMS Posen, quickly taking heavy water, listing rapidly and losing all propulsion. Efforts to contain the damage failed, and the ship was scuttled by its crew in the early morning hours.

HMS Orion

HMS Orion was a battleship of the Royal Navy, launched in 1910, the lead ship of her class and the first "super-dreadnought". In World War I she served in the 2nd Battle Squadron of the Grand Fleet based at Scapa Flow and fought at the battle of Jutland, 31 May 1916, suffering no damage.

As a result of the Washington Naval Treaty she was decomissioned and sold for scrap in 1922.

SMS Kaiserin

SMS Kaiserin was a Kaiser class battleship built in Germany prior to World War I and which served in the High Seas Fleet of the German Imperial Navy during that war.

Kaiserin was the third ship of five which comprised the Kaiser class. It was the only vessel to be given the name SMS Kaiserin.

During the war, Kaiserin was assigned to the 3rd Battleship squadron along with its class-mates. The ship was interned at Scapa Flow until the scuttling of the fleet on 21 June 1919.

The wreck was raised and broken up in 1937.

SMS Lützow



SMS Lützow was a German Kaiserliche Marine battlecruiser under Capt. Harder, flagship of Vice Admiral Franz von Hipper's Scouting Group I battlecruiser fleet in World War I. She was named after Prussian general Ludwig Adolf Wilhelm von Lützow who faught in the Napoleonic Wars.

She displaced nearly 27,000 tons, with a main armament of 8 x 30.5cm (12 in) guns, making her the largest and most powerful German battlecruiser to date, along with her elder sister SMS Derfflinger.

She was commissioned on 8 August 1915 for trials, but developed major problems with her turbines, which necessitated 6 months of repairs before she was able to enter service. She was finally fully commissioned in March 1916, just over 2 months before the Battle of Jutland, which was her first and only battle.

She led Scouting Group I at the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916. In this engagement her accurate fire in the early battlecruiser action (beginning at 15:48) knocked out the 'Q' turret (13.5" (343 mm)) of HMS Lion, the lead Royal Navy battlecruiser, starting a catastrophic fire that, but for the quick-witted heroism of the turret's mortally injured commanding officer, would have subjected Lion to the same lethal magazine explosion that befell three other British battlecruisers that day. Lützow proceeded to take heavy punishment from her British counterparts as the main battle was joined in early evening on 31 May, though her own fire remained deadly: the British armored cruiser HMS Defence, rushing to finish off the foundering light cruiser SMS Wiesbaden between the opposing fleets, was hammered by Lützow and other leading German capital ships, disintegrating spectacularly at 18:20.

At about this moment, however, Lützow and Derfflinger came within range of a fresh squadron of British battlecruisers led by Rear-Admiral Hood in HMS Invincible, the original ship of all battlecruisers. Two 12 inch (305 mm) shells from Invincible struck Lützow below the water line near her underwater torpedo tubes, leading to severe flooding. However at about 18:30, the very moment the Grand Fleet first "crossed the T" of the High Seas Fleet, Invincible suddenly appeared before Lützow and Derfflinger as a perfect target steaming 5 miles (8 km) away. Several 30.5 cm (12 inch) salvos later, Invincible blew up and sank with all but 6 of her 1,032 crew, including Admiral Hood. Lützow took several more large caliber hits, and steadily fell behind the main fleet as flooding worsened, forcing Hipper to transfer his flag to a destroyer around 19:00.

In the following hour, Lützow continued to sustain damage, taking a total of 24 heavy-calibre shells from 12 inch, 13.5 inch, and 15 inch guns. The two 12 inch (305 mm) hits below the waterline from Invincible were the most serious. After the night action of 31 May/1 June, Lützow tried to make her way home. She took on more water and slowly settled deeper. When the water was up to the level of the barbette of her 'B' turret, she was abandoned by her 1,150 surviving crew and scuttled by one of her escorts, the torpedo boat G-38, her escape from the battle area being reckoned hopeless. She was the largest German ship sunk by British gunfire in the war.

HMS Thunderer (1911)



HMS Thunderer was the third Orion class battleship built for the Royal Navy and was the last vessel to be constructed by Thames Iron Works. She was the last and largest warship ever built on the River Thames.

By a margin of Ł1000 she was the most expensive battleship of the 1909 Construction programme built, and after her completion her builders declared bankruptcy. She proved to be the slowest (by a knot) of the Orion class on trials.

During World War 1 Thunderer served in the 2nd Battle Squadron of the Grand Fleet. In December 1914 she was refitted. She was present with 2BS at the Battle of Jutland, 31 May 1916, firing 37 13.5" shells. She suffered no damage. In 1917 she was fitted with flying-off platforms on B and X turrets.

As a result of the Washington Naval Convention she was decomissioned in 1921. From 1922 she served as a cadet ship, the sole surviving ship of her class until she was sold for scrap in December 1926.
