HMS Galatea at the Battle of Jutland

HMS Galatea at the Battle of Jutland

The presence of the enemy was first indicated by a wireless message from H.M.S. " Galatea," stating that two cruisers, probably hostile, were in sight bearing E.S.E. " Galatea's " position at that time, i.e., 2.25 p.m., being 56.48 N., 5.21 E. The vessels reported By " Galatea " eventually proved to be enemy T.B.Ds. and were chased by her. The first shots of the battle were fired at 14:28 when HMS Galatea and Phaeton of the British 1st Light Cruiser Squadron opened on the German torpedo boats, which withdrew toward their approaching light cruisers. At 14:36, the Germans scored the first hit of the battle when SMS Elbing, of Rear-Admiral Friedrich Boedicker's Scouting Group II, hit her British counterpart Galatea at extreme range.
