HMS Black Prince at the Battle of Jutland

HMS Black Prince at the Battle of Jutland

HMS Black Prince was an armoured cruiser which formed part of Rear-Admiral Robert Arbuthnot's ill-fated 1st Cruiser Squadron at Jutland. The squadron was employed as a screen several miles ahead of the Grand Fleet. During the early engagement, Black Prince became separated from the rest of the force, and later during the night came into contact with the German High Seas Fleet at point blank range. Powerful searchlights were turned on her and she was engaged by up to five battleships. There were no survivors from a crew of 858, all of whom are included in this Community.
