That is fascinating! And 100 years after the battle was fought!
It was only 60 years transpired when I first heard about the Battle of Jutland.
Thank you for the link, tdkguy!

I saw that article yesterday on another site and read it and then some of the comments down below it. (There was a lively discussion about the aircraft carrier HMS Engadine.) I'm not a big naval historian or gamer so I decided to do some research to learn more.
The discussion centered around Engadine being an aircraft carrier in WWI. That caught my eye so I googled it to find more. I found it interesting about her being a converted seaplane tender and her planes were used as the first recorded naval aviation recon during this battle.
I realize that I am probably talking to a bunch of people that know more about this than my quick 2 minute tutorial session. I just find it fun to peel back layer of an onion when reading and researching stuff like this.
